Summer Camp at Morris Arboretum

Summer Camp

Registrations opens in late January 2023

Our campers made many special memories at the Morris Arboretum this summer! All of our educational programs are uniquely designed within the 92 beautiful acres of the Arboretum. Our goal is to get children as comfortable as possible within nature through fun immersive experiences that encourage scientific inquiry, curiosity, and discovery about the world around them. It is our belief that when children are surrounded by trees, birds, animals, and insects they will come to appreciate and protect them as future stewards of our planet.

Camp runs for six weeks from July to August, and each week we welcome about 50 campers from ages 4–11. Our camp environment is informal, fun, and structured with weekly themes including birds, insects, plants, art, outdoor skills, and mythology. We spend nearly all of our time outside hiking, playing, and making crafts. On hot days we cool off by exploring the creek and playing in sprinklers. Overall, we had a great summer in 2022, and we look forward to seeing everyone again in 2023!

More information for Summer Camp 2023 including weekly themes, dates, and pricing should all be available by November with registration opening in late January 2023. Stay tuned for more info! For any questions, please contact Ilana Grubin at or call 215-247-5777 x127.
