Visiting Artist Program! Click here for more information on our artists

‘Mark of the Maker’ is our theme for summer camp 2018. Each of the nine weeks we will be exploring art, craft, science and nature while we play and create together in the beautiful setting of New Hope Camp and Conference Center. 

Drawing, Painting, Sculpting, Pottery, Wood Working, Weaving, Music, Writing, Story Telling and Black Smithing will all be part of the summer art scene at camp.

Through the art and craft experience each camper will have opportunities to learn about themselves, their peers and the environment as they express their individual experiences. Self awareness and confidence are the goals as campers explore the Mark of the Maker and make their own mark in the community they are engaged in!

We will have a different visiting artist each week to introduce campers to new materials and processes as they learn to “Think Through Art And Craft”. The experiences campers have on the sports field, water front and nature will be the foundation for ideas and inspiration in the art and craft studio!

The High School Crew

Training Week June 11th – 15th



“The Crew” is a camp for rising 10th graders. The goal is to learn about Camp from a different perspective by serving meals, cleaning dishes, and learning about the diverse jobs around Camp. The program is designed to complement the camper experience and prepare members to join the camp as counselors-in-training the following year. Crew members will also get to enjoy their own activities and will receive CPR training. Successful participants will come away from this program with valuable leadership skills that will serve them well at home, in school, and in their own community.

Members are required to sign up for the mandatory week. After completion of a mandatory week the Program Director will meet with each crew member to determine eligibility to serve as a volunteer during the summer camp season.
