Art Day 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 your children the opportunity to discover a world where life takes place in harmony with nature. We now have the Lazy Llama Campground where parents or grandparents of the children can camp during the week during the art day camp. Children 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 do not have to be “artistic” to attend the camp. This engaging environment will help children discover their own abilities and creativity through art and farm activities. Boys and girls alike will experience learning like they’ve never known before. 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. 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:
Baby llamas (crias) are born at Walnut Ridge Llama Farm each year in the Spring and Fall.
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)
Each weekly session is limited to 16 campers so everyone can receive individualized attention. All supplies are provided and the art projects are distributed at Friday’s closing activities.
If you are 9 to 13 years old, 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!
