Bring joy to your children this Easter and help children in need experience joy of their own!
This year, on the Saturday before Easter, April 20th children, are invited to bring their Easter baskets and to come explore Joslin Garden and while parents visit beautiful Joslin Garden.
Younger children (six and under) will hunt for eggs in the patio and formal garden areas in a traditional easter egg hunt at 10:00 AM.
Older children (six to ten) will go on a larger egg scavenger hunt along the forest trails of the garden, looking for eggs at 10:30AM.
There will be other children's activities at the Garden at the time as the egg hunts.
This year tickets for the Easter Egg Hunt will include a $10 donation to help children in local Raleigh homeless shelters to attend a week of summer camp through Raleigh’s Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources and the City of Oaks Foundation’s Give Play Program.
Tickets are limited and all participants must have a ticket in order to participate. This event has sold out each year it has been held. Donations made to this charitable cause are not refundable. Children will receive candy in the hidden eggs.
Please visit the City of Oaks Foundation's website at: https://cityofoaksfoundation.org/programs to learn more about the Give Play program, which provides financial aid to under resourced families in the Raleigh area so that their children can attend active outdoor summer camps. Funds raised from this year's easter egg hunt will be used specifically to provide these camp opportunities to children living in Raleigh area homeless shelters.
