Please note: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts on university operations, in-person summer camps will not be available at the Garden this summer. Instead, we are partnering with our sister organization, the Johnson Geo Centre, to bring you a brand-new virtual summer camp, STEAM Quest!
