Kids at the ‘Art of Nature’ camp

(CNS Local Life): About 100 children have completed a four-week summer camp devoted to nature- and heritage-based arts and crafts activities. Jointly run by the National Trust and Art Nest Creative Studio, the camp, “Art of Nature”, was held at the Trust’s operational base in Dart Park on South Church Street.

There were stimulating and educational outings during this unified effort, which was held in conjunction with the Department of Environment, the National Gallery, Big Brothers-Big Sisters, Red Sails Sports and Sea Elements, with daily field trips to locales such as the North Sound, the fine-arts centre, and Dart’s recycling plant, stated a press release.

Camp counsellor Catherine Childs said in the release, “We enjoyed four weeks of fun-filled adventure exploring nature and heritage while expressing ourselves through art. We are truly thankful to our sponsors for making such an enriching camp possible.”

Subjects studied included the patterns of migratory birds, blue iguana conservation and marine preservation.

The camp was supported by Butterfield Bank and Dart – which sponsored the participation of children selected by Acts of Random Kindness – as well as other companies and government agencies.
