Our Philosophy


We focus on giving your child the chance to experience the transformative power of art and nature.

A harmonious balance between outdoor exploration and thoughtful art projects challenge all of your child’s senses to absorb their environment, fostering a long-lasting relationship between them and the natural word. Each camper comes to understand their place in nature as well as the importance of preserving it. Adventures in art and ecology will keep your child engaged and excited to come back and learn more.

What Others are Saying . . .


"I cannot say enough good things about Wild at Art Nature Camp! It is an intimate setting, the staff are excellent, and the director is hands on with all of the kids and parents. My daughter got to spend the summer outside, exploring nature, hiking on the trails, and getting in touch with her creative side with lots of art and photography. She came home with paint on her clothes, dirt on her skin, tired and happy! She can’t wait to go back this summer!" –Camp Parent
