Get ready for a week filled with fun and adventure in the great outdoors! Discovery Camp programs are based on the philosophy that young people benefit from experiences in the outdoors. It is the mission of the Arboretum’s dedicated and experienced Discovery Camp educators to cultivate a sense of adventure and wonder in the outdoors, foster an enthusiasm for exploration in the natural world, and promote environmental awareness, stewardship and conservation. We’re proud to have won first place for Best Nature Camp in Mountain Xpress’ Best of WNC 2016 awards!
April 10-14, Grades K-5 – Springtime Wonders: Campers will learn all about the new and exciting things that happen in spring, meet classroom animals, hike to explore habitats, make unique crafts to take home, and participate in the ecoEXPLORE program.
