The Cape Fear Botanical Garden is holding spring break camps for students. Volunteers can sign up for individual days and do not have to commit to the whole week. Camp themes include Pop, Fizz, Bang, Fantastic Beasts of Harry Potter, Nature's Superheroes, Endangered Animals. and Water and Wind. Camp assistants will help pass out supplies, prepare snacks, set up and clean up each day, assist children with crafts, read stories, and other jobs as needed. The children are ages 5-12. Our summer camps teach science and conservation through hands-on fun activities and outdoor explorations. It is a fun opportunity to help children learn and enjoy time outside.
There are no more than 10 children in each camp and all children have their temperature taken and wear masks during the program. The volunteer will be required to wear a mask as well.
We will schedule a short phone call or in-person meeting with interested volunteers to ensure they plan to attend camp and help them have an idea of how our camps operate.
The purpose of the Cape Fear Botanical Garden is to enrich, inspire and serve the Cape Fear Region as a dynamic center for the collection, culture, and aesthetic display of plants; to encourage the enjoyment of the natural beauty of plants and birds; to promote environmental stewardship; and to provide educational and research resources for the community.
Situated on the bluffs of the Cape Fear River, at the confluence of the Cape Fear River and the Cross Creek River, The Cape Fear Botanical Garden maintains original, old growth forest and plants indigenous to the area. The 85-acre garden is comprised of both formal, cultivated gardens and natural woodland areas intersected with a network of over 3 miles of barrier-free foot-trails with interpretive signs that provide for a scenic and educational exploration of the forest above the river.
The Garden offers educational opportunities, tours, and various seasonal events ranging from the annual fall "Harvest Hoedown" to the summer Symphony concert in the amphitheater.
