SOLD OUT: Building Landscapes & Exploring Nature Camp

  • Monday-Friday, July 15-19 9AM-4PM Ages 6-12

Olana is a vast landscape stretching over 250 acres. When Frederic Church designed it, he was clearly inspired by ideas developing in the USA about land, nature, wilderness, and leisure parks. These trends led him to design Olana with both an artistic eye and a scientist’s sensibility enhancing his own eco-system. Explore nature through observation, science, and outdoor excursions with incredible environmental educators from the Taconic Outdoor Education Center! Youth will hike, play games, collect, make art and dioramas, and tour the museum, plus much more.

week 2

SOLD OUT: Inspired Landscape: Light, Color, and Pattern of Olana

  • Monday-Friday, July 22-26 9AM-4PM Ages 6-12

The landscape and house at Olana is a pastiche of styles and materials and this art camp will follow suit and explore a wide range of artistic media. Frederic Church designed this landscape and architecture to be enjoyed and experienced by future generations. This camp is led by artist education husband and wife duo from Germantown who inspire the staff at Olana (so imagine the camper’s delight!). Come hike, paint, play, print, craft, build and collaborate with us during a fun-filled, inspiring week this summer.

week 3

This camp is led by a working architect and will explore topics in the built environment through drawing, model making, fort building, design challenges with everyday materials, and turning youth dream homes into professional renderings. Come hike, observe, play, build, and collaborate to spark an appreciation for architecture.
