Spending time in nature unlocks the imagination and inspires creativity! In this fun-filled experience, campers will let their creativity run wild while learning new ways to use natural materials to create beautiful works of art. We will be limited only by our imagination as we explore ways to find, make and use different nature provided tools for painting, sculpting, drawing, and print-making. Nature walks, creek exploration, story-telling, and games will keep the creative juices flowing!

Learning objective: By connecting with nature and engaging in a variety of art projects your child will have an opportunity to express their ideas freely, think outside of the box, and push their boundaries. These creative experiences will allow them to see things differently, and in doing so create greater confidence and emotional development.
