In July Leach Botanical Garden will be transformed into a self-contained art studio for summer day campers ages 9-13. While exploring all areas of the Garden, campers will fine-tune their observation and recording skills. Studying nature while exploring the Garden influences art projects such as drawing, sculpture, weaving and more! Of course there will also be plenty of time for games! On the final day of camp, family and friends will be treated to an art show!
