TWO UNFORGETTABLE WEEKS WITH ART + NATURE? YES, Please!

Have your child be the first to experience a brand-new summer camp that merges fine art with nature at di Rosa!

During this two-week camp, your child will foster a love of art and nature, develop new friendships, and increase their social and emotional learning skills while spending healthy time outdoors in the Carneros. The last Friday of camp will include a special family reception and open house, along with an exhibition of favorite artworks made by participants.

Campers will learn about the diverse flora, fauna, animals, and geology at di Rosa as their group explores the 217-acre nature preserve. Your child will hike, do archery, and play field games.

Campers will make art during studio time and learn about the many sculptures and artworks that can be found outdoors and inside di Rosa’s spacious galleries. No art experience is needed, just a readiness to have fun and get messy! Campers will learn how to hand-build objects with clay, screen print, make paper, create natural dyes from plants, and lots more.

Your registration fee includes a special Camp di Rosa artist smock, a personal art kit to take home at the end of camp, and all materials.
