Artist Boat Winter Eco-Art Camps
Registration Now Open
During the holidays, sometimes it is necessary to get the kids out of the house for a little while. What better place to send them than to explore the wilds of the West End at Artist Boat’s Coastal Heritage Preserve?
|Coastal Heritage Preserve||Artist Boat|
Art meets science in Artist Boat’s 2021 winter day camp sessions. Campers will experience true science and art enrichment with the creation of Eco-Art and exploration of Artist Boat’s Coastal Heritage Preserve. Each camper will create high quality art projects and explore like a young naturalist. Each day features a different theme, so you can come for one or come for all!
Sessions are limited to 12 participants. Our Winter Eco-Art camps are designed for kids aged 5 through 10 years old. Please send your camper with a sack lunch and some snacks. Each session is $45 and takes place between 9am and 4pm.
