Art + Environmental Education Day Camp

Led by naturalists, scientists, indigenous culture keepers, and teaching artists, this program is designed to allow students to safely explore and celebrate preserved natural landscapes near to where they live.

The 2023 Spring Break Day Camp took place April 10 – 14, with instruction at the Mariposa Creek Parkway. Summer Day Camp took place over 5-weeks with schools across the County, with outdoor education at multiple sites, including:

  • Mariposa Creek Parkway in Mariposa
  • Bean Creek Preserve in Coulterville
  • Stookey Preserve near Bootjack
  • Wahhoga Village in Yosemite National Park

“I was so thrilled to have my kids be able to learn outside, away from screens, and fully immersed in our natural world. Both of my children came home each day with beautiful art projects and a lot to share with me about what they learned that day. Thank you to all of the camp counselors, School staff, and the Mariposa Arts Council for making this a reality!”
