Summer Camp 2013

Come explore the great outdoors! Red Butte Garden may be best known for its beautiful plants, but there’s a lot more to see and do than just appreciate the foliage! Our weeklong camps combine the excitement of the natural world with science experiments, art projects, Garden exploration and the simple joy of the outdoors. Meet great friends, learn something new and join us for an adventure!

Camps are available throughout the summer for children entering kindergarten through 6th grade and include half and full-day options. Registration is required. Click on each camp link in the calendar below or call (801) 581-8454 to register. Camps fill quickly, so register early.
