Paint Box Mystery Art Camp

This year, campers will continue to experience new art themes at the Preserve, providing the direct connection to nature that is essential to our programs.

Christy Knight, a trusted BHNP Environmental Educator, created this afternoon art program for our Great Blue Herons day camp.

Each exciting day includes our signature paint box mystery hunt, live drawing process, and creative games with plenty of room for independent design and discovery. Each session ends with a Friday frozen treat as we marvel at all the amazing art we've created to take home!

Art Camp is automatically included if you sign up for a full-day of Great Blue Herons day camp during the weeks that are outlined below. If you would like to skip morning camp and just attend Art Camp from 1pm - 4pm then you can sign up here.
