FULL Camp Black Bear: Ages 5-7 Afternoon Camp
Join us for three artful days in which we explore the wonders of the natural world. Mother Nature is just awakening from her winter slumber together with the animals and plants of spring. We’ll gather inspiration for fun creative art, movement, and/or music projects while discovering what is springing up in and around the Artistree fields, forest, and pond. Camp will include daily snack and recess breaks.
Sign up for half days or full days. Morning camps will offer different activities from afternoon camps. Please note that we will be going outside each day! Campers must bring outdoor clothing (warm jacket, mud boots, gloves, hat, and rain gear if appropriate), a change of indoor clothes, snacks, water bottle, and lunch (if appropriate). Lunch and recess time will be 12-1pm.
