Art Camp – Camp Backcountry

As a blend of both an art camp and a nature camp, we give art making a new meaning. There are no “cookie-cutter” projects here. We introduce campers to a wide range of materials and techniques, and unleash their creativity and imagination to build new skills, all while spending time outside in the wild. Each session follows a similar format with lots of traditional camp activities and outdoor adventures, along with creating a unique take-home art project each day.
