This week we had camp at "The Kingdom", Waterfall Arts' original site, spotted with studios, surrounded by trail-crossed forest and of course, a beautiful stream with a waterfall. It was a low-key affair, with just two campers - both loved hiking the trail and "conquering the river", so we did some of that just about every day. We did get some art making done, too! Here's a guide to our week, in pictures!

Nice job… now can we have some sand back?

Lily was the only one to enjoy slimy sand. A lot.

|Free time out of the sun, to use whatever materials... boy, was it quiet!|
