Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens' programs for children offer the perfect mix of fun and educational activities that explore science-related topics pertaining to plants, animals and ecosystems. Whether they are identifying leaves and blooms or making discoveries about life in our planet's tropical forests, inquisitive kids will love learning about the natural world as their respect for the environment grows. 

Dive into food science and use the scientific method, learn  from our registered dietitian, create delicious meals and engage in fun physical activities.  

These all-new full day programs immerse campers in the world of Phipps for a week of scientific discovery! Decode nature by studying the wildlife in the Pittsburgh region, explore the tropical forest biome and so much more!
