WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - EntSun -- (West Palm Beach, FL – March 27, 2024) Friends of the Mounts Botanical Garden will be hosting two week-long programs in July 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 15-19 and July 22-26.

"Eco-conscious and green-leaning kids can register for one of both of these weeklong camps because each one will offer something new and different," promises Mounts Interim Co-Director Misty Stoller. "Activities will take place both outside and indoor, so campers will have access to a cool, dry space in the event of excessive heat or rain."

Each of the two camp sessions will be limited to 30 participants and will offer a variety of fun and informative experiences:
  • Week 1: July 15-19, 2024 – Nature Talks

Campers will gain a better understanding of the natural world around them and learn how they can contribute positively to the environment.

+ Activities: Strawberry DNA, Gem Mining, Flower Dissections, and more.

+ Snacks: Zucchini Pizzas, Cauliflower Tots, Pickles, and more.
  • Week 2: July 22-26, 2024 – Energy

Campers will get the chance to test out various forms of renewable energy through engineering activities.
