Summers Shine (and registration begins) at Reeves-Reed Arboretum


SUMMITt, NJ   The winter is almost over and plans are underway at Reeves-Reed Arboretum for an exciting summer of weekly fun camps. Whether your child is interested in nature, science, art, or dance, the Arboretum’s Elephant Tree Camp has a fun offering just for them!  

Kids will be able to choose from a vast selection of playful titles such as Dynamic Dinos, Mammal Mania, Lenape Ways, and Nature Sleuths.  And new this summer, thanks to a partnership with Bold Arts, we’re offering Fields of Wonder: a Celebration of Nature and the Arts, where children, led by NYC Teaching Artists, will be able draw, paint, dance, sing, and create, taking their inspiration from nature-theme works of art as well as the beautiful grounds of the Arboretum.

Elephant Tree Camp, under the guidance of Jackie Kondel, RRA’s Director of Children’s Education, and RRA’s Environmental Educators, Lisa Martin and Althea Llewellyn, is aligned with New Jersey’s Core Curriculum standards, so your child will be learning and having fun at the same time!  For those parents looking for a longer camp day, RRA is introducing Arboretum Afternoons, an hour long program created for children interested in attending both the morning and afternoon camp sessions.

Registration for this season’s summer of fun begins on March 1 for the general public. For information about the full summer offerings of Elephant Tree Nature Camp, call  908-273-8787 x 1515 or log on to

So don’t miss out on the fun, and learn why each year the kids tell us this is by far, their favorite camp!  

Celebrating over 40 years as a historic public garden and education resource, Reeves-Reed Arboretum engages, educates and enriches the public through horticulture and environmental education, and the care and utilization of the gardens and estate.  Open 7 days a week from dawn till dusk, the Arboretum is listed on both the National and New Jersey State Historic Registers. Funding for RRA has been made possible in part by the NJ Historical Commission, a division of the Department of State, through a grant administered by the Union County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs, Dept. of Parks & Community Renewal.

Reeves-Reed Arboretum…..a place to grow for everyone!
