Fairies and Gnomes
This week step into the magical world of fairies and gnomes. Each day will feature garden activities, plantings, and even some construction at the “Gnome Depot!” All leading up to creating your very own fairy and gnome garden.
June 28-July 2
You will be enGROSSed in knowledge while finding out how horribly fascinating nature is! Campers will perform experiments, construct crafts, and get their hands dirty exploring nature. If your little one is fascinated by the weird but true, wild & wacky, and gross & yucky, then this is the Garden on the Go for them!
Adventures in Time
Travel to prehistoric, native, colonial, and even hippie times to see how plants played a part throughout history!
What do mocking birds, tomatoes, and ladybugs all have in common? They are all Tennessee state symbols! Spend the week learning about all of Tennessee’s state symbols with plantings, projects, and even a square dance tutorial.
Claws, teeth, horns, and roars! This week will be full of adventures while campers discover and uncover the creatures great and small from the prehistoric era.
