No Camp July 4th

In this 4 day workshop, campers will be emerged in the natural wonder of the world around them through hands on activities, art and field trips. Campers will visit Lafitte Greenway and Bayou Sauvage to learn about water management and the swamp ecosystem. They will also visit local community gardens. Daily activities include foraging for food and art,  collage making using foraged materials,  land formation and geology studies, plant and animal identification on the bayou and much more. Inspired by the natural world, campers will create nature art such as mobiles, leaf mandalas, and bee hotels. We will take the 4th of July off and return to recap our week with an art show & interpretative performance of what we have learned for families and friends. Cost includes field trip transportation.
