Junior Master Gardener Camp is suspended for 2022 due to scheduling conflicts. We hope to see you in 2023 for this camp and look forward to seeing you at any of our other youth programs for 2022. Look for any of the other youth programs using the link in blue below.
Junior Master Gardener Camp is a five day camp during June from 9:00-12:00 daily held at Historic Mansker's Station. The camp fee is $100 per camper.
Campers will enjoy hands-on-fun and creative activities while encouraging them to explore their world by helping them discover the love of gardening and an appreciation for the environment.
Advanced registration is required due to limited class size.
The Junior Master Gardener program is designed for children in grades 3 to 5. It is modeled after the highly successful Master Gardener program and offers hands-on fun and creative activities. Each day consists of a different topic.
By participating in Sumner County’s Junior Master Gardener Camp, your child is participating in an international youth gardening program sponsored in Sumner County by the University of Tennessee Cooperative Extension network. JMGC engages children in novel, “hands-on” group and individual learning experiences. Activities encourage children to explore their world while fostering a love of gardening and an appreciation for the environment.
Using materials from Texas A&M, we've designed our camp to give your child an exciting and enriching summer experience under the supervision of trained and experienced leadership. Our leaders, who are members of the Sumner County Master Gardener's Association, along with staff from the City of Goodlettsville, have committed their time and talents to this endeavor.
Camp is limited to 15 students at a cost of $100 per student for all five days. Campers should check in thru the Visitor's Center. Each camper will receive a Junior Master Gardener t-shirt on the first day of camp, and the t-shirt will be worn each day of camp.
