The Arboretum at Flagstaff is committed to nurturing awareness and a sense of connection to the natural world through experiential, place-based, science education, centered around the ecology of the Colorado Plateau. Camps are focused on four principal themes: scientific investigation, outdoor exploration, health, and stewardship.

Experienced educators will offer hands-on learning opportunities in a variety of programs that include: wildlife of the area, live study of insects, our amazing weather, science and art, plant survival, and wilderness survival skills.
