NICHES Explore the Wildcat Summer Camp @ Clegg Memorial Garden
Jun 26 @ 8:30 am – Jun 30 @ 5:30 pm

Summer Camper Journaling at Clegg

‘Explore the Wildcat’ offers campers a chance to connect with and learn about the natural world, create art, make friends, and paddle along the state scenic Wildcat Creek.  Campers will not only have fun exploring outdoors but also develop an array of art skills. Camp will have a dual nature/art focus. Each day campers aged 11 – 14 will explore the Wildcat & native ecosystems along its shores. The end of the week culminates with an art exhibition showcasing the art created by the campers throughout the week.  Campers can invite family and friends to the exhibition. CAMP IS FULL FOR 2017.
