Do your young ones have a passion for art, science, nature, and love to work with their hands? If so, a specialty art camp like Artist Boat’s Eco-Art Camps may just be the perfect fit. Camps run all summer long and can be taken a week at a time. Sign up now as spaces are limited to ensure small camp size and individual attention.
Artist Boat uses S.T.E.A.M., an educational approach to learning that uses science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.
Artist Boat has won national recognition for its educational programs and is a leader in outdoor educational experiences for small groups led by scientists and artists.
Campers use the scientific method to investigate processes in our ocean. Each camp culminates in the creation of artworks that illustrate the knowledge that campers have acquired about our ocean. Camp sessions are designed for children Kindergarten-Sixth Grade and split into groups of ages 5-8 and ages 9-12.
Summer Camp sessions are $150 per week for half day sessions or $300 per week for full day sessions. Camps are held from 9am-12 noon and 1-4pm. Sessions are limited to 12 campers.
