Event description
July 2020 School Holiday Program at Adelaide Botanic Garden

About this Event

The Botanic Gardens' marvellous School Holiday Program returns for 5-13 year olds this July 2020.

The Adelaide Botanic Garden's activities have been designed to promote fun, hands-on learning about plants, people and the environment. Parents are encouraged to book early – spots will sell out!

Prices range from $10 to $15, with each activity running for an hour. Some activities are tailored for specific age groups - check carefully whether your child is suited to each activity and where in the garden your activity will be held.

Bookings are essential for all activities. Small booking fee applies when booking on Eventbrite. Please arrive 10 minutes early to check in.

Please note: Activities are available to school-aged children only. Numbers per group are strictly limited. All children must be accompanied by one Parent/Caregiver at all times. Ticket required for child only.

We look forward to welcoming families to our July school holiday program. The safety and wellbeing of our visitors, volunteers and staff remains our highest priority. As a result, we are implementing a number of measures so we are able to offer a safe, welcoming and fun experience for all that attend and ensure we meet COVID-19 regulations. These include:

  • Total group numbers will be capped for each activity including registered children and attending caregivers.
  • Only one caregiver is able to attend with a registered child/children. Unfortunately, other siblings or caregivers will not be able to attend.
  • The attending caregiver must remain with the registered child/children for the entire activity.
  • Physical distancing of 1.5 metres between people.
  • Practicing of good hygiene before, during and after sessions.
