Description

Junior Master Gardener Camp is a five day camp beginning June 4 and ending June 8 from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm daily held at Historic Mansker's Station.

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. The topic for the week camp is Insects and Diseases. Campers will find out what’s bugging them and their plants by exploring the world of insects and plant diseases.

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.

Monday: Insect Basic

Tuesday: Insect Life Cycle and Classification

Wednesday: Insect Collecting

Thursday: Insect/Plant Interaction

Friday: Plant Diseases

Camp is limited to 15 students at a cost of $75 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 their first day of camp, and the t-shirt will be worn each day of camp.
