Summer Camps 2023

We are currently working on our Summer Camps at Aldridge Gardens for 2023. As in years past, space will be very limited and available on a first-come basis. Aldridge Gardens members can register early, beginning February 15th. General registration begins March 1st.  

We have plenty of camps to choose from for boys and girls entering kindergarten through 5th grades. Whether your little campers like American Girl Dolls, art, or S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math), we have something they're sure to enjoy. 

Aldridge Gardens is closely following the City of Hoover and the CDC health guidelines. For the safety of all of our visitors, volunteers and staff, we will be social distancing and disinfecting as required. Masks are optional.

See below for a tentative list of the camps being offered this summer. This list will be finalized on or before February 15th. Costs are currently scheduled to be $130 per camp for Aldridge Gardens members and $150 per camp for non-members. An Aldridge Gardens annual membership for $50 could save you money if registering for multiple camps as a non-member. Not an Aldridge Gardens member? No problem. Click here to join online.
