Summer Camp

Touching the Earth & Arts Camp (TEA)

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 20 years, we have worked with children and families in the Upper Valley to create summer camp experiences that last a lifetime.


Our goals are to provide a small group outdoor experience, and: respect the environment, respect each other, increase environmental awareness explore our surroundings, explore natural arts enhance our awareness of the connections between ourselves and our environment.
