[Note that this camp will be made available to currently-enrolled Camp Artemis campers first before opening to the public]
The show must go on…
For four years Camp Artemis has been a place where girls can go to be themselves and to know that they are loved, they are valued, and they belong. While a pandemic has made it impossible for us to run camp in the way we normally would, we are thrilled to be able to carry forward some of our most important Camp Artemis traditions through this day camp option.
“Camp Artemis is tremendously important to my child… Thank you. She feels empowered, capable, valued in a way no other program gives her.”
Camp Artemis is the ultimate Nature Camp, for Girls only! This week will be filled with amazing crafts, skills, and friends. Girls at Camp Artemis will learn amazing skills to help them become protectors of the forest, just like the mythical Artemis. We will practice our crafts together as we learn to work with leather and plant crafts. We will learn to listen to the forest by studying the language of the birds. Plus, learn to know the wild plant foods and medicines that grow in the forest. Along with all this there will be opportunities to push yourself to grow stronger and take on any challenge together with your fellow campers. Conversations with your fellow campers will help you to discover self-esteem and confidence. Instructors will be there to guide you and empower you to take on these challenging skills and find the confidence that comes from knowing you can take care of yourself in the woods.
Camp will culminate with a ceremony to celebrate your strength, growth, and self-awareness.
Field Trip to Big Bear Camp
Last, but not least, the hosts at Big Bear Camp have invited us to visit camp during the week for a special field trip. That way we can still experience the sense of belonging to Big Bear Camp that generations of students have.
Included with your tuition is a locally-designed reusable face mask, a custom nature journal, and your choice of pocket field guide. (Whole Earth Nature School stainless steel water bottle available for $20 cash at camp, while supplies last.)
