June 20-24, for high schoolers
Discover the natural world, and how to blend science with art in this week’s Conservation Photography Summer Camp! Each day features guided photography walks, designed to get the camper observing the natural world in a new way. They will use technology, science, and art to build deeper connection to the ecosystems we are a part of.
Campers will restore bird habitat and do some field conservation work so they learn what goes into field work. This counts for volunteer and service hours! Industry professionals will present about the importance of using eco-art to communicate scientific data. At the end, campers will create a gallery that tells a story as we display their artwork, professionally framed, during an opening reception!
Some of the activities will include:
- Guided nature photography walks (campers do NOT need a DSLR camera, a phone/tablet will work)
- Tutorials in photo editing, post-processing, and digital portfolio creation
- Environmental Science hikes into forests, fields, and aquatic habitats
- Bird Habitat Restoration Field Work (counts for 5 community service or volunteer hours)
- Gallery and Opening Art Reception featuring artwork by campers
- … and so much more!
Price: $400/camper, with $125/week for extended care (9am-5pm). All materials, including professionally framed artwork, gallery experience, limited edition camp t-shirt, and more included! Summer Camp group size is capped at 10.
