Explore the Animal Kingdom through Art and Nature

Summer Camp 2024: June 24–August 16

Nature meets the arts in this thoughtfully designed summer camp! Designed for children ages 3 to 5 (eligible for enrollment at 2 years, 9 months), the Arts & Nature Camp at the Mitchell College CLC in New London blends the arts with science and the natural setting of woods, pond, and shoreline through thematic exploration in one of the most creative camps you will find in the region.

This year our summer curriculum will explore the Animal Kingdom through eight animal groups: Mammals, Fish, Birds, Rodents, Reptiles, Amphibians, and Bugs. During each week of camp we will explore multiple concepts within these classes of the animal kingdom through play, art, and nature. Your child is invited to join us for Arts & Nature Camp: The Animal Kingdom this Summer!

You must register for the full eight (8) weeks of camp this year to be enrolled.

Camp Philosophy

We believe that children are partners in their learning and that learning should be driven by each child’s unique curiosity. Your child’s unique interests will help shape the camp experience in this hands-on program. Throughout the summer your child will be exposed to new and exciting nature experiments, arts appreciation, exploration, and science.
