Nature is the touchstone for the Conservatory’s summer camp programs. From cultivating and harvesting a garden to creating a flower-inspired artistic masterpiece, summer camp at Franklin Park is anything but expected.

Camps are offered for ages 3 through 10. Campers participate in fun-filled activities throughout the day with a focus on the camp’s theme. A supervised lunch and half-hour free time will take place every day, allowing campers to participate in unstructured play and an opportunity to make new friends.

In addition to themed activities, campers will explore the Conservatory and its many gardens, including the Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation Children’s Garden. Features include a creek, wetland area, canopy walk, nature art studio, playhouse and more!

Information on 2023 Camps is coming in December!
