Butterfly Pavilion camps encourage exploration, learning and play through one of a kind experiences that connect kids to the natural world.
Butterfly Pavilion camps are designed to provide kids with memorable experiences that connect them to nature and encourage an appreciation for science. Led by a dynamic education team, our camps incorporate exploration, inquiry, art, drama and play for programs that appeal to variety of interests and abilities. Camps are offered during the summer from June to August, as well as on some Out of School Days during the school year for youth ages 5 -14. Space is limited and pre-registration is required.
Registration is open for this year's Summer Camps.
