Summer Science Camps

Check back here on January 15, for member and February 3, for nonmember registration for Science Camps 2020.  Camp will run weekly June 1 through August 14.

We’re building the next generation of conservation and environmental scientists, outdoor enthusiasts…and tree huggers.

Unlock your child's imagination with interactive adventures in the great outdoors all summer long. Through science experiments, art, and creative play, The Morton Arboretum's exciting camps will inspire your child to become a champion of trees.

With more than 100 camps for children in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade, Summer Science Camps at The Morton Arboretum will stimulate their senses and unlock their imagination.
