Adult Session 2018,  June 7-11, 2018: The Invisible in Nature

Do you remember your time at Nature Camp fondly and wish you could go back? Are you secretly envious of your child’s camp adventures? Well then dust off your traveling trunks and bring a pencil and please join us in June for Nature Camp’s 29th consecutive Adult Session.  For five days, from Thursday the 7th to Monday the 11th, we will explore the theme of “The Invisible in Nature;” learn more about the hidden world under our feet, above our heads, and in the vast cosmos; and enjoy stimulating conversation, pleasant company, and outstanding food. We will investigate the flora and fauna in and around Nature Camp, make solar prints from natural items and bows and arrows for children, learn how to navigate with map and compass, engage in personal nature writing, play with solar toys, brew beer, and take a trip to the dark side of space and time.

And participants will once again have the opportunity to learn a new instrument and make beautiful music together in the Appalachian string band ensemble.  Several new instructors will join the experienced faculty, and we welcome back some veterans after an absence of one or more years.  Two full days of classes, workshops, crafts, field excursions, natural history study, and hikes will be followed by a day-long field trip (location TBD).  The cost is $320 per person and includes all meals from supper on Thursday through breakfast on Monday.
