About the Event

Outside IN is back! 

Join us for a 3 week session this summer, geared to your favorite 8-12 year olds.   Outside IN will provide guidance for kids to practice nature observation, art-making and reading, while leaving plenty of time for summer daydreaming. Each week we'll keep a nature journal and tie what is happening in the natural world to literature and poetry, the art of sensory observation, and creative play with various artistic media. 

Campers will choose one or more works of fiction from a reading list put together in collaboration with Split Rock Books that embraces this ethos of creative exploration. 

Session Duration: July 6th through July 27th (3 weeks total)    

Outside IN will meet twice a week to share and explore as a community.  Meetings will be held in the morning, either in-person or online, depending on the weather.  In-person meetings will be held outdoors, within the Village of Cold Spring.  

Schedule and meeting locations TBD.

Cost:  $180 for each participant

Younger siblings (Ages 5-8) are welcome to join Outside IN, but may need some parental or sibling assistance.

We know this last year been especially rough for everyone.  Creativity Camp sessions are available at reduced cost to accommodate any financial twists and turns that have come your way. Please email us at info@suppliesforcreativeliving.com for additional information.
