Add to Calendar 20-02-2012 24-02-2012 15 Winter Science Camp The annual winter break from school can be a great opportunity to keep curiosity alive for young children and bring inspiration even on a cold, wintery day.

Highlights of the children's activities will include running their own experiments, exploring the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, making paint from plants, and riding on the Garden's tram. February 20-24, from 9am-4pm. Extended care is available from 8-9am, and from 4-5:30pm for an additional fee. Space is limited.
