Art Day Camp
TWO SEPARATE CAMPS FOR CHILDREN & ADULTS
* June 11-14 (Children’s Camp)
* June 25-27 (Adult’s Camp)
“Art at the Llama Farm” is a day camp experience located at Walnut Ridge Llama Farm only minutes from Greeneville and Jonesborough Tennessee. The llama farm offers a summer day camp unlike any other in East Tennessee. It provides children and adults the opportunity to discover a world where life takes place in harmony with nature. We now have the Lazy Llama Campground where couples, individuals, parents or grandparents of children can camp during the week during the art day camp. Children and adults are allowed to enjoy and learn through fiber arts and crafts while surrounded by the tranquility of llamas. The 19 acre llama farm is the ideal setting for such a unique art and farm experience. Children and adults do not have to be “artistic” to attend the camp. This engaging environment will help children and adults discover their own abilities and creativity through art and farm activities. They will enjoy the lost art of fiber and interact with one of the world’s most gentle creatures, llamas.
The llama farm’s summer day camp is open to children ages 9 through 13 years old. This will be the first year that we offer a separate camp for adults (18+). Campers will rotate through two art sessions and two farm activity sessions each day.
During the sessions the students will be involved in activities such as:
Fiber Arts (dyeing, spinning, weaving, knitting llama fiber & yarn)
Arts & Crafts (Drawing, painting, felting soap)
Farm Activities (Feeding llamas, miniature horse & donkeys, chickens, & emu)
Llama Activities (grooming, shearing, training crias (young llamas), llama obstacle courses)
Nature Activities (Llama trekking, hiking, gardening, nature exploration)
Academic Enrichment (math, social studies, science & language arts instruction through farm activities, art, creative writing, journaling, and storytelling)
Physical & Fun Activities (field games, board games, old timey games, hayrides)
** Adult camp will be altered based on the interest of the people in the camp.
Each weekly session is limited to 15 campers so everyone can receive individualized attention. All supplies are provided and the art projects are distributed at Friday’s closing activities (children).
If you are 9 to 13 years old for the children’s camp and 18+ for the adult’s camp, come spend a week at Walnut Ridge Llama Farm and have a great time expressing your creative side and learning all about llamas and farm life. Art, animals, and nature — it doesn’t get better than that! Click the ART DAY CAMP link at top of page for additional information or call 423-823-2100.
