WELCOME – Carol and Emily are excited to share their 9th annual summer Art and Nature Camp in the rural setting of 100 Mile Farm in Wakefield, Québec, this coming July. CAMP ART NATURE will continue their tradition of hosting a fun filled bilingual environment for youth aged 7-12 who love to mess around outdoors and delve into creative visual art projects. This summer, we’ll be offering one week of diverse programming where campers discover their unique style of expression, learn different art techniques and develop creative confidence using a variety of media.
We strive to create an environment in which children can have fun and express themselves through their art projects, adventures in the fields and forests, storytelling and play. Each day is spent outside in and around the century-old open barn where campers take in the warm summer weather and enjoy nearby pastures, soaking up the sounds of surrounding wildlife. In addition to our daily art sessions, we’ll partake in activities like plant identification, storytelling, cooling off in the sprinkler, gentle hikes and exploration of the beautiful trails of 100 Mile Farm. We offer a space where participants can make new friends, have fun with old friends and be inspired by the natural world.
