Create art, connect with nature, and have some FUN in a hands-on, outdoor learning community (7 participants max.) at Josephine Sculpture Park! During Session II, we will explore nature journaling, photography, music and movement, and conservation ecology.
All activities will incorporate mindfulness, nature connection, and art in an outdoor setting – a wonderful combination of experiences that are proven to help participants get creative, calm their mind and body, relieve stress and anxiety, and be more confident and resilient in exploring themselves and new scenarios that may come their way. The artistic practices and exercises we conduct during Art in Nature Camp will serve as “tools in their toolbox” they can use and refine the rest of their lives! Join us at Josephine Sculpture Park, where art meets the earth!
Weather & Clothing: We will be outdoors to enhance the direct learning and health benefits of being in nature, and to reduce the chance of spreading COVID-19 or other airborne viruses. In the event of severe weather, we will convert the session to be virtual. We ask that parents/guardians monitor the weather to encourage participants to wear appropriate clothing to keep them comfortable, such as a raincoat, jacket, coat, hat, close-toed shoes, and sunglasses. However, we do not want this be a barrier to your participation. Simply contact us if you have questions or concerns about the outdoor nature of the program, or if you need assistance getting clothing.
Parents & Guardians: Don’t let your participant have all the fun! Nature is good for you, too! While your participant is at camp, we invite you to explore JSP’s mowed walking paths among 30 acres of native Kentucky habitat and over 60 public art installations. There are also plenty of outdoor tables, benches, and shady spots for you to relax and reflect in nature. You can even pack a picnic lunch for you and your participant to enjoy around one of our picnic tables at the end of camp (we will end right at noon)! You are not required to remain at the Park during camp; however, if you pick up and drop off your participant, please respect our start and end time (11am to noon).
COVID-19 Safety Precautions: Participants and instructor(s) will monitor and report their temperature, potential symptoms, and potential exposure to COVID-19, and communicate results as appropriate as outlined in official guidelines. Participants and instructor(s) will wear a mask and maintain at least 6ft distance. Participants will not share supplies or utensils. We will monitor any official COVID-19 updates and adapt our precautions accordingly. In the event that we need to discontinue in-person programming for public health reasons, Art in Nature Camp will continue virtually. Upon registration, we will send you more detailed information. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
Yes Card holders (Yiftee eGift Card provided to Just Say Yes participants) may purchase registration for their student with Yes Card funds.
