Come to us or we can come to you! Through hands-on discovery and exploration, your campers will experience plants and the natural world in ways that spark their curiosity and inspire their inner conservationist!

Or lead your group yourself! Discover all that the Missouri Botanical Garden has to offer, including the Children's Garden—an unforgettable climax to a wonderful day of exploration.
