Visual Arts Track

The hottest trend of the Art world is coming to camp.
Eco-art is a fast growing trend and a major part of the environmental awareness movement
We at Camp Kimama are excited to open a track that will allow your children the opportunity to work with unusual materials, and learn a variety of design methods and techniques. Campers will be able to take home amazing and useful products that they have made themselves. Each session will be focusing on experiments with different materials.
