Join us in this hands-on art camp and experience the joy of making! Create beautiful and useful handcrafted works of art, learning skills like dyeing, paper-making, and bookmaking. We’ll work with sustainable materials, using natural fibers and inspiration from the forest!
Week-long Camp: August 8 – August 12, 8:30/8:45 a.m. – 3:15/3:30 p.m. Grades: 6-8
Drop off Location: Grades 6-8 meet at Upper Macleay Park, which neighbors Portland Audubon on Cornell Road to the east. Type of Camp: Overnighters mainly take place at Marmot Cabin and the Miller Wildlife Sanctuary, outside of Sandy, Oregon. There are two 30 foot yurts and a 3,200 square foot cabin and a 91 acre wildlife sanctuary for us to explore, learn new skills and connect with nature and each other. *Unfortunately, with the rise of the BA.4 and BA.5 strains this summer, we’ve also learned a great deal about the impact of COVID-19 on our campers and our staff, as a result we have made the extremely difficult decision to cancel the Marmot Cabin overnight component of Forest & Fibers, as well as future camps.
