CAMP GROW at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens, in Vienna, VA, invites children to explore nature through hands-on activities, gardening, discovery walks, hikes, crafts, music, storytelling, and animal programs.

CAMP GROW is designed to engage, challenge, educate and encourage a sense of community. We value and encourage inclusion of all campers in every activity.

Each day, campers bring their own snacks, lunches and beverages and come dressed for the weather and activities. All campers and parents are required to sign a Rules of Conduct form that focuses on fostering a positive and cooperative camp environment.

REgistration Opens on February 1 at 10 a.m. 

 

Refunds: There are no refunds for missed days due to changed work, vacation schedules or sick days. Refunds minus a $25 administration fee (when canceling an entire camp registration only) will be provided only for cancellations made at least 45 days prior to the first day of the camp session.
