A 3-day, half-day camp all about Natural Materials! June 28th- 30th, 2023 9am- Noon — For Children & Adults with Diverse Abilities
Therapeutic Horticulture Camps promote health and well-being incorporating the natural world. Each camp empowers children and adults to strengthen critical thinking skills and hand eye coordination, think of nature as a place of rest and relaxation, and explore nature through an artistic lens. Ages 8+ are welcome for this drop-off camp (unless a nurse or guardian is needed for mobility or other support)
In this camp, we will forage for usable found objects, (small rocks, snail shells, etc) herbs, and create fun and artistic projects to take home. On the Agenda: Pressed flower rocks, windchimes, handmade paintbrushes, paints with herbs and fruits, and more.
The Garden is for All: Cape Fear Botanical Garden provides individuals of all abilities a meaningful way to connect to the natural world through programs that are tailored to the group’s goals. Participants learn new ways to engage in exercise, manage stress, communicate and build self-confidence while enjoying the peacefulness of the Garden’s tranquil setting.
