Four themes will rotate throughout this summer: Eco-Explorers, Garden Magic, Art-venture is Out There! and for the first time, Green Guardians. Our very last week will include camp favorites so children who attend can get a variety of activities offered throughout the summer.

2023 Summer Camp lottery registration is open March 3 to 8. 

To attend Willows camp, campers must have completed Kindergarten.

ECO-EXPLORERS

June 26-30 or July 24-28

Grab your gear! We’re off to explore the many habitats of ICG; wade in the wetlands, wind through the meadow and trek the forest. 

Discover the plants and animals that make these ecosystems their home. When not out on an adventure, we’ll tinker, build, and create using recycled materials and what we can scavenge from nature. We’ll restore, upcycle, convert and invent everything from sculptures to simple machines.

Calling all of those with green thumbs!  Come experience all stages of gardening, from planting seeds to harvesting vegetables, and all of the creatures that make it happen, from pollinators to decomposers.

This week, we will plant, harvest, compost, and taste the delights of our very own Kitchen Garden.  Learn to start a garden, tend to plants, and use fresh food to give your growing body the nutrients it needs. Smell the flowers from our Kitchen Garden and Wildflower Meadow while discovering the helpers they attract. Come play, learn, and grow in this new camp week!

Educators will share their knowledge in culinary mixings, fire-making, and fine art skills. Campers will have an opportunity to discover their muse, find their inspiration, and take their projects, and delicacies, from concept to masterpiece.
