    Art Adventures and Writing Adventures camps provide an opportunity for young artists and writers to explore the historic house, estate grounds, and Museum’s renowned collection of American art. Inspired by the art collection, participants in Art Adventures will produce five original works of art, while Writing Adventures participants will craft several written compositions of different genres.

    Summer adventure camps are week-long, half-day camps for elementary and middle school students.

    During the Creative Writing Workshop — designed exclusively for students who have completed grades 6-9 — participants will actively engage in the writing process to produce their own written compositions from the pre-writing through the publishing stages. Students are encouraged to find a personal connection to works in the fine art collection that will inspire their writing. Additionally, the workshop will include art activities in the studio, an exploration into the history of the Reynolds family, their grand estate, and a glimpse behind the scenes of the Museum.

    Each week of Summer Adventures camp includes time for art-making or writing, exploring the historic house and grounds, swimming in the indoor (ventilated) pool, and lunch from home (unless otherwise noted). The safety of our campers is top priority! The museum will continue to follow the local COVID regulations, as they evolve and change. This summer, to maintain social distance and minimize contact, campers will remain in the same classroom space the entire week to work on art and writing projects.
