Ashokan Adventure & Arts Day Camp is July 14-Aug 12th. Sign up for five consecutive Wednesdays (ages 7-10) or Thursdays (ages 11-13) filled with outdoor music, art, and nature exploration!
It’s summer! A chance for kids to gain confidence, form new friendships, create art, and explore the beauty of Ashokan with our fun and experienced staff. We will build community in small, thematically-connected, hands-on learning activities including: canoeing, hiking, songwriting, drumming, geology & ecology, archery, games, watercolor painting, and more!

Activities schedule will be dependent on the weather and will vary each week.

Monday-Friday 9:30am-3:30pm. $250 per child, includes lunches. Registration is for all five days.
We understand that some children may not be able to attend all five but in the interest of safety and community building, we have chosen not to allow drop ins or substitutions. 

On site lunch provided outdoors or in our social distanced dining hall. All campers must wear a mask and will be gently but firmly reminded to distance during all activities and wash hands frequently. In case of extreme weather, indoor spaces will safely accommodate this small limited-attendance group. Otherwise, all classes will take place outdoors in our pavilion, gazebo, or other roofed structures.
