Course description

Join us for a campout designed especially for families! Pitch your tent on the lawn inside the Children’s Garden and get ready to spend a night under the stars. Explore the Children’s Garden and enjoy a guided evening hike followed by s’mores! When you get sleepy, retire to your cozy tent and snooze the night away. In the morning, wake to the sound of birds singing; then enjoy a light breakfast before the Garden opens to the general public.
