Dirt Camp review...

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!

The swing (Lily demonstrates in the background, right) trumps the waterfall for Favorite Feature of the Kingdom… followed closely by the sand table.

Success! A mound large and strong enough to withstand 
a hole bored through its base.
Nice job… now can we have some sand back?
Weaving on loom-frames we made from sticks. 

Watercolors and drawing way upstream from the falls.
Bubble snakes with a waterbottle+sock blower.
Lily was the only one to enjoy slimy sand. A lot.
Afterhours debriefing.
Jacob's stick-pal. Lots of these hanging around!
making pulp in the blender with paper scraps...
...for papermaking!
Free time out of the sun, to use whatever materials... boy, was it quiet!
