Calling all campers! Here’s a chance to indulge in some nostalgia for carefree, fun-filled summers as SMITHSONIAN at 8’s annual garden party celebrates the best parts of camp. Relish those memories at an after-hours celebration in the historic Smithsonian Castle and Haupt Garden that invites you to return to camp—this time with a cocktail in hand!
Enjoy your favorite activities including crafting friendship bracelets, music indoors and out, traditional camp games, and more. Join us around the “campfire” in your favorite outdoor wear—comfy flannels, those cherished camp T-shirts, and shorts are all welcome. Close out the summer with an evening of fun that—like your old camp song—you’ll never forget!
