Art at The Woods
Campers will be challenged to think outside of the box and explore new ways to make art using recyclable/ reclaimed materials. Campers will use household items and everyday “trash” to construct collages, sculpture, etc. This will be a fun and innovative way to help educate children about the importance of conservation, and how we can help save the environment through recycling.
The children will be encouraged to start thinking about recycling even before the camp begins, by collecting some of the items they will use to make their projects. i.e old magazines, bubble wrap, glass jars or old vases, etc.
Each day of the camp, we will focus on a specific theme and on the last day we will have an exhibit of the children's work so that they can display what they have created and share what they have learned, with a reception for family and friends.
Open to girls and boys in upcoming grades K-7
Equestrian Camp for Beginner's
Beginner riders will be assigned a school-owned horse to ride and take care of for the 3 days they are at camp. Campers will ride for at least one hour in the morning session and after lunch they will learn basic horse care and skills in a classroom setting. Campers will also get the real-life experience of cleaning their horse’s stall each day and cleaning their tack.
Open to girls and boys in upcoming grades 2-9
Nature at The Woods
Natural adventures will abound both indoors and outdoors in this camp. We’ll take hikes, make crafts, experience tasting sessions, and do some hands-on explorations. We will also share some of the great sustainable practices that The Woods and The Sisters of Providence do on a daily basis to help insure a safe and viable planet for the future. This camp will be perfect for the avid outdoors child as well as those that are curious about nature. Come and explore Nature at the Woods!
Open to girls and boys in upcoming grades 1-5
