Exploration and Creation

In the studio, campers will create drawings, paintings, clay works, charcoal artwork and more! Campers will return home daily; with a smile, art projects in hand and stories of engaging outdoor adventures – Like the time campers saw a black bear at Spooner Lake! 

To ensure the best possible summer experience, Art and Adventure Camps are instructed by professional educators and local professional artists. 

Camp adventures along Martis Valley trails and watersheds, hikes along high alpine single track and along lake shores will inspire artistic creativity and light a fire for exploration. Campers will use this inspiration to create works of art both in the studio and outdoors.
