July 18-21, 2024
Ages: 11-14

Join us for a week of viewing the natural world around you through a creative lens. Campers will spend their days exploring the enchanting wilderness of the North Fork region of Glacier Park and the Flathead National Forest with a nature journal in their hands. As junior naturalists and art illustrators, campers will explore, discover, identify and record their surroundings. With a particular focus on bear grass, fish, animal skulls, and feathers, campers will respond visually by creating a portfolio of drawings, paintings and collages of things we gather along the way! All art supplies will be provided for the week. When campers leave at the end of the week, they’ll have a new appreciation for nature’s beauty.
