We couldn’t be more thrilled to be welcoming you all to: Camp Creative Weaving Our Stories, inspired by place.

 Ignite your young artists’ creativity during our week-long camp. They will embark on an artistic journey like no other, delving into a multitude of inspiring experiences. Throughout the camp, they will have the opportunity to explore weaving sculptures amidst the enchanting woods, capture the rich textures of the Northshore, express themselves through movement, discover the allure of public art, immerse in poetry within the natural surroundings, experiment with printing techniques, create expressive landscape sketches, delve into the art of weaving, engage with creative writing prompts, and venture into the great outdoors for tree and bark rubbings. 

As the week draws to a close, parents will have the pleasure of attending an exclusive site-specific exhibition held in the surrounding woods. It will be a showcase, where the culmination of their children’s artistic endeavors will be displayed, celebrating the talents and discoveries made throughout the camp. Join us for this experience, where your young artists can freely explore their creativity and parents can revel in the beautiful artistic expressions of their children. 

Please send your camper with:

  • face mask (advised only)
