The Arboretum at Flagstaff has decided to cancel all EcoExplorer Summer Camps for the 2020 season due to concerns regarding the health of your children, the general public and our staff.  We are dedicated to staying true to our program’s intention, which is to bring youth together in the outdoors for creative lessons in wise stewardship. Due to this year’s COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to make this experience a reality for your young campers. We hope that you can understand that this decision is borne out of our commitment to the health and safety of your children and our shared community. Please know that we will truly miss the giggles and laughs ringing through the gardens this summer, and we are already looking forward to a robust and exciting 2021 reunion.

If you have already registered and paid for camp – you will receive a full refund and be notified via email. If you have not received an email/refund by Friday, May 15th, please contact Kirsten.Mead@thearb.org.  All funds will be refunded in the manner in which they were paid.

For the 2020 season, staff are working diligently to develop lessons for young learners and new self-guide materials for visiting The Arb with your family. Please, check the website frequently to see what is available: thearb.org

Stay strong and be well,

Kristin E. Haskins, Executive Director
