In support of initiatives to control the spread of coronavirus, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 summer camps. All registered participants will receive a full refund. We are exploring ways to offer summer camp programming and activities available online. Please check back for updates and information.
Enjoy time outdoors observing art and nature, making art, and exploring creative writing during our week-long day camps at Storm King.

Adapting our popular Storm King Young Explorers for older campers, participants will make use of Mark Dion’s Storm King Environmental Field Station (2019) as an exciting home base for the week. The station will become host to myriad activities, including tactile investigation of the landscape and artmaking. Campers will come away confident about exploring the outdoors and modern and contemporary art.
