The Camden Children’s Garden is designed for children and families to explore and discover the natural world.
The Club is a non-profit environmental and educational organization, originally formed for the purpose of assisting Camden City residents with community gardening. The Club’s programs soon expanded in 1989 to include the in-school Grow Lab Program and the Youth-at-Risk Job Training and Employment Program. The organization’s community gardening program has been expanded to include community greening and beautification projects as well as urban farming.
In 1993 the Club began planning the Camden Children’s Garden. The Garden opened in July 1999 as a four-acre “horticultural playground.” Today, the organization also provides both on-site and distance learning educational programs.
EDITOR’S NOTE: The children’s garden has became an activity center which families visit for entertainment and education and is successful due to it’s wide range of activities, courses and events that it provides.
