Say “hooray” to the most flexible summer camps around! At Kids Garden, weekly camps are structured so you can sign up for the days and times that work best for your family—be it several weeks, select days or even just a few hours at a time. Activities change weekly and are centered around various themes, from Lego learning and science to creative crafting and music and movement (plus many more in between).
2024 Indoor Summer Camps
2024 Outdoor Summer Camps
Our Outdoor Summer Camps offer parents daily and weekly camps. It’s here that Junior Explorers will be transported on our buses to our sister location of Natural Gathering Grounds. These camps are typically booked by the week, and range in theme and explorational learning themes. The goal of Outdoor Junior Explorer Camps is to unplug from the world, and reconnect in nature! Campers can join enriching Kids Garden activities in one of our centers, before or after day camp hours.

Come break geodes, examine fossils, make your own volcano, and discover all of the amazing aspects of Earth Science.

Summertime is the perfect time to form friendships, discover new places, and get to know where you live. Campers will gain a sense of community and culture while learning about the Lowcountry through crafts, games, yoga, dancing, and so much more!

Campers will explore the world under the sea, learning about our oceans and the diverse animals that live there. From fish and whales to sharks and stingrays, this camp will ignite a sense of wonder.
