Summer Camp: Birdhouses, Butterflies, and Fairy House Fun

July 29 @ 9:30 am - August 2 @ 12:00 pm

Repurpose various materials such as wooden boxes, cans, and jars to craft and embellish charming birdhouses and butterfly shelters. Add a pop of color with vibrant paints or opt for natural elements. Transition to crafting a fairy abode from twigs, enhancing it with pinecones, acorns, dried flowers, and moss for a touch of magic.

Embark on a stroll through Waveny Park to collect supplies and draw inspiration from fairy tale drawings.

Celebrate the week’s creations in a final day sharing where campers can showcase their creations in the Carriage Barn gallery, and take everything home at the end.

Please bring a snack, water bottle, and comfortable clothes for crafting and outdoor discovery.
