City Safari Summer Day Camp: Weekly sessions through August 14, 9 am – 4 pm. The Botanical Conservatory has always been an oasis of nature in the heart of the city. This year our City Safari camp program, for children entering 1st – 6th grades, will expand on that urban link as we explore the similarities between natural and human systems. Each week is based around a different theme, such as Energy, Communications, or Transportation with activities, crafts, and challenges designed to provide a hands-on understanding of that theme. Each week will also feature a field trip to a natural location outside of city limits, as well as visits to various destinations within the city itself. Snacks will be provided, as well as lots of fresh air, exercise, and fun. Free before and after care are provided 7 – 9 am and 4 – 6 pm. City Safari Day Camp is certified with CANI for CCDF vouchers. Sign up for one week or as many as fit your schedule!
