We also serve Northwest Arkansas schoolchildren with programs in the schools and at the Garden. Classes and programs explore a broad array of garden-related topics, including wild plants, animals in the garden, health and wellness, sustainability, and garden and floral design.
Our children’s programs are extensive. In 2012 over 10,000 children visited the Garden for school field trips, science education, camps, and special events.
One of our most popular programs is Little Sprouts, a weekly summer program beginning on May 1, 2013 for all ages of children up to five years old.
For children ages 7 to 11, BGO offers an 8-session day camp called Explore@BGO which meets on Tuesday mornings from 9:30 am to 12:00 pm. Children have the opportunity to engage in hands-on learning activities that expose them to the wonders of the natural world.
