Youth Camps

Kids in the Woods summer day camp interweaves arts with weeklong intensives in environmental sciences.

Kids in the Woods summer camp will return in 2020! Stay tuned here for details or sign up here to be notified when registration opens.

Campers are immersed in the natural environment as they engage in a variety of hands-on art and nature activities such as:

  • Creating poems inspired by local ecology
  • Collecting and studying insects
  • Making puppets of woodland creatures for a puppet show they write themselves
  • Sculpting clay houses for bugs and frogs
  • Learning how to identify trees and other plants
  • Constructing a colorful cardboard forest
  • Creating mosaics out of seeds and sand
  • Daily nature walks in the woods and on the levee
  • Documenting their camp experience in a handmade journal
