Big Kids Art Camps

Sports and art camps are offered in the morning. Campers enrolled in those programs will not participate in the morning rotation of activities. Adventure and Service Learning Camps are full-day, thus campers will not be joining typical camp activities in the afternoon. Camps are for campers entering grades 2nd through 5th unless otherwise noted.

Comic Books and Cartooning

Week of July 1
Campers will develop their characters by sketching and coloring, allowing them to come up with a storyline for a cartoon strip. They will then learn about facial expressions and figure drawing to enhance their characters. The week will culminate with creating a movie poster based on their own cartoon. Mediums used will be sketch pads, charcoal pencils, colored pencils, and colored markers.

Flower Power

Week of July 8
We will be using all the parts of the flower in this weeklong exploration of beautiful camp grown flowers at Bellevue State Park! Campers will start the week with examining the flowers through observation and dissection.  They will make sculpture and cyanotypes with parts of flowers, dip the petals and stems in paint for printing, and learn to make fabric dye.  The second half of the week will be filled with learning about how to care for a garden, grow flowers, and the exciting art of flower arranging.  All levels are welcome.

Puppet Making

Week of July 15

In the Puppet Workshop we will explore how to build hand puppets using various materials such as: paper mache, acrylic paint and fabric for designing the puppet’s costume. We will cap off the week by showcasing our camper made puppets in a mini play to be presented to campers and staff!

Wacky Painting

Week of August 12
Ever wondered what kind of painting you can make when you hold the brush between your toes? If this and other strange ideas for painting interest you, you will enjoy Wacky Painting Week! We will be making our own paint, our own brushes, and exploring wild ways to paint. From glow in the dark paint with a black light, to exploding water balloons filled with paint, this week will be anything but ordinary. Come prepared to get messy!
