The Artist in Everyone

Each Week this summer we have invited a resident artist to stay at the campground to teach workshops, and demonstrate their skill each day for our guests~ either at a low cost or for free.

Keeping with our mission of facilitating family vacations, these daily activities will be attractive to both children and adults and  generally focused on families learning and playing together.

  2. A web site link : the week of July 17 with Marianne and Elaine is ‘Spinning Yarn and Weaving with words”, and http://syww.wordpress.com/ is our website. We are pretty excited about being there soon with you. Our week will be both spinning yarn and learning to make a use a drop / hand spindle, as well as looking at nature around us for inspiration for writing in a variety of forms.
