Our unique approach to creating memorable summer camp experiences for children and adults focuses on finding our place in the natural environment and developing our relationship with our environment through the creation of art using natural materials. For more than 18 years, we have worked with children and families in the Upper Valley to create summer camp experiences that last a lifetime.
