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.
This is your opportunity to explore weaving, carving, photography,nature crafts and a variety of other interesting passions.
