Art in Nature is a week of fun and adventure that combines the great outdoors with artistic expression in the natural environment. It is the perfect program for campers who want to link their creative and artistic expression using the outdoors as their canvas. Campers spend their days running, exploring, and playing in the woods finding different mediums for our art projects. Don’t be fooled by its name – Art in Nature has plenty of room for adventure. Campers should expect to have a mix of land and water-based days during their week. Art in Nature campers will be encouraged to challenge themselves in their art expression and in outdoor adventure. As with all of our Adventure Camp programs, Art in Nature culminates with an overnight on Thursday and Friday.
Optional GearBags to purchase:
This year, Calleva is offering campers the option to purchase a GearBag during checkout which includes all the camping gear you will need for your overnight. These duffle bags come home with your camper on the bus before the overnight so it can be packed with personal clothes and toiletries!
We are aware that there are concerns regarding Rain & Storms at camp. Sometimes the weather requires a change in itinerary for water-related activities and overnights. If high water conditions cause safety concerns, Art in Nature groups will utilize a pre-planned alternative overnight location. We will continue with outdoor activities as long as it’s possible to be safe and with happy campers.
