Want to avoid the dreaded cry of "I'm bored" from your kids a few days into Spring Break?

Enroll them in Brookgreen Garden's Spring Break Camp, STEM and Roots, especially designed for grades K - 3.

Campers will explore all the gardens at Brookgreen, along with getting a little dirty, and learning about plant science along the way! 

They will also have fun with hands-on, garden-focused art, science, and craft activities. 

"Did you know that planning a garden, planting the seeds and watching them grow give kids a sense of purpose and responsibility. ... Furthermore, studies show that when children have contact with soil during activities like digging and planting, they have improved moods, better learning experiences and decreased anxiety."
