Children’s Programs

Longue Vue is committed to fostering growth, education, creativity, and exploration

through seasonal programs in the gardens and historic house.

We offer programs for toddlers with their parent or caregiver, elementary school students,

and adolescents up to age 15.

Ages 5 and under:


  • Children under 5 and their parents/caretakers meet in our interactive Discovery Garden for early childhood enrichment, free play, garden exploration, and guided learning through craft, song, and other group activities.

Visit our Sprouts page for seasonal times, dates, and themes.

Ages 5 to 10:


  • Students will spend their Saturdays learning about gardening techniques, making nature-based art, and exploring their connection to the natural world. Each meeting will have a seasonal theme.

Visit our Vue Crew Kids Garden Club page for updates regarding our new weekend-based format for Spring 2022.


  • Featuring different themes each session, campers will connect to the natural world through garden observation, arts & crafts projects, games, water play, and more. Each day features a balance of hands-on learning and exploration in the Discovery Garden.

Summer ‘Scapes 2022 is SOLD OUT!
