KidVentures In Science

Adventure is Everywhere...

...And we're taking you on ours!

Each class is a new adventure traveling back in time or in Burpee’s backyard! KidVentures in Science are one-day classes that pack a punch of learning and fun suitable for ages 3-6. 

Scheduling for the whole family?

Kidventure classes run at the same time slot as Explorer Classes (ages 7 & up)

Starting in January 2022, during the same time spot, Burpee offers Kidventues in Science (3-6 years) and Sensory Scientists (3 & Under)!


*All unaccompanied children need to be bathroom trained. If your child is not, please plan to attend the class with your child*
