The HSBC Children’s Garden at Queens Botanical Garden offers children in our diverse metropolitan area a rare opportunity to learn about science and nature through practical, hands-on experiences in an outdoor environment.

When summer arrives, the fun and learning heat up, as children make salads from their spring vegetable plantings, bake cookies in a solar oven, learn about climate and environment, raise and release butterflies, plant delicious summer vegetables, conduct scavenger hunts, build planters and terrariums and lots more. Ages 5 through 12.

There are two sessions:

  • Summer I: July 8-August 21, Mondays & Wednesdays
  • Summer II: July 9-August 22, Tuesdays & Thursdays

Or you can create your own schedule. Contact us about other flexible options. You may call or email
