2017, Group 2

Ages 8 to 14*

New: All About Art
Join us for 1 to 4 weeks of artistic activities. We will use a variety of materials to develop creativity, encourage problem solving, and enhance our methods of self-expression and cooperative learning. Campers will be led by our talented and dedicated creativity enthusiast, Emily Remensperger, our Class of 2018 teacher. All levels of artistic activity welcomed and encouraged! Each day we will have breaks between art-making to allow the kids to run around, play games, and just hang out together. Frisbees, badminton, drawing supplies, water balloons (for hot weather), cards, and friendship bracelet making supplies will be available during those times, but campers should feel free to bring books, journals, or other (non-electronic) games they enjoy and would like to share.
