This is truly a hands-on camp, where personal expression is spotlighted, and group dynamics expand ideas and insight on natural art and science. There will be endless opportunities to be inspired – at the camp’s “Trashion Show” – as well as being the inspiration to others, which will all be showcased in the end-of-camp Art Show.

Art in the Ozark campers will spend their time enjoying a variety of firsthand activities designed to enhance their understanding of the importance of both art and science self-discovery.

Activities include the following:

•              Scientific discoveries in a natural outdoor classroom rich in ecological history
•              Learning to meld biology, chemistry, and geology with art, literature, and music
•              Exploration and scientific testing on ponds, streams, and woods
•              Interdisciplinary science discussion with Missouri S&T faculty and students

NOTE: Campers are welcome to bring personal digital cameras, smartphones, and laptops (but they are not required), however, they will be responsible for all personal items while at camp.
