Summer Camps

Discover. Learn. Grow.


Hey Kids! Ready For An Outdoor Adventure?

Spend your summer at Red Butte Garden and learn something new in our fun and educational summer camps. Our weeklong camps will spark your curiosity for the natural world through STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) investigations. Discover science, nature, art, ecology, cooking, and more—all while having fun in the sun, making new friends, and exploring the great outdoors!

Red Butte Garden’s signature summer day camps provide exciting, fun, and enriching outdoor learning experiences for children in kindergarten through 6th grade. We offer morning, afternoon, and full-day camps to give parents, guardians, and caregivers flexible scheduling options. Spend a week or the whole summer at the Garden!
