Mounts Botanical Garden To Offer Garden Explorers Summer Camp Twice In July

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - June 28, 2022 - PRLog -- (West Palm Beach, FL – June 27, 2022) Friends of the Mounts Botanical Garden will be hosting two week-long programs next month for nature curious youngsters ages 7 to 11. Garden Explorers Summer Camp offers science-based fun and nature experiences, Monday through Friday, 9 am to 3 pm, July 11-15 and July 25-29.

As part of the Season of Awe, Wonder and Reconnection at Mounts, each camp session will be limited to 20 participants and will offer both inside and outside activities, including:
  • Become a junior wetlands water quality specialist by learning how to catch and identify macroinvertebrates in Mounts' beautiful Lake Orth.
  • Become a budding soil scientist by getting a close-up, dirty-hands look at the properties of mud.
  • Become a blooming horticulturist by discovering the wicked, dangerous, sticky, deceptive and downright incredible adaptations plants have developed to help them survive.
  • Become a botanist-to-be by attending a dissection lab for an inside look at the fascinating structures of seeds and flowers.
  • Become an aspiring agriculturalist by touring the edible gardens at Mounts and learn how to grow and nurture tasty fruits and vegetables.

The cost to attend each week-long session is $250 for Mounts members, $290 for nonmembers. (Note: an extra $50 per camper will cover extended care, 8 to 9 am, and 3 to 4 pm.)

For each session of the Garden Explorers Summer Camp, young participants should bring a refillable water bottle, a healthy lunch, a hat, sunscreen, and bug repellant.

For each camper, Mounts will provide materials for all activities, snacks, and water for refilling bottles.
