Youth & Family Programs

At Green Bay Botanical Garden, education is the core of our mission. We achieve that mission by offering many programs to adults and children throughout the year.

Our Children and Family programs allow families to learn and grow together while fostering children’s inherent love of nature. These classes include activities such as cooking, hiking, workshops and more. Classes are released quarterly in winter, spring, summer and fall.

Upcoming Programs

 

Annual Programs

Garden Sprouts

This program occurs one Friday a month and is designed for children aged 3 to 5 and one accompanying adult. Through stories, songs, projects and activities, children will be able to explore a wide range of nature topics.

Children’s Story Time

Every Tuesday morning in the summer, families are invited to join us for nature-themed stories, crafts and activities in the Children’s Garden.

Family Nature Nights

Throughout the year, join our Children and Family Educator, Kelle, as she takes you on a themed nature hike through the Garden.

Camp GBBG

For ages 6–12, participate in day long camps or weeklong/half day camps! Camps include games, activities, crafts, songs and more related to the theme. Special this year, we are hosting our first Winter Day Camp in February.
