Caterpillar Club

Investigating "The Music of Nature, the Rhythm of Life" in My Big Backyard!

Caterpillar Club offers group meetings over fall, winter, and spring.

Parents accompany their toddler or pre-schooler (up to age 5) as they share stories, play games, create crafts, and explore the natural world. Led by instructor Drew Massengale, with the support of the Memphis Botanic Garden Youth Education Department, Caterpillar Club is one of few pre-school adventures in Memphis that gets your little one discovering nature, hands-on, in the great OUTDOORS!

Week-long summer day camps are also available for 4-5 year-olds.

Spaces are limited; contact us at 636-4122 or e-mail for more information or to register.

Caterpillar Club meets from 10-11 am; choose either Tuesday or Wednesday sessions for the entire semester. Please call for availability.
