What do we do in our Permaculture Summer Camps for kids and youth?
Little Artshram Summer Camp offers a curriculum based in a creative, nature awareness inspired approach, also known as Permaculture – which embodies the ethics of caring for the earth, caring for other people, and giving something back. Our programs are guided by an ecological design process, with permaculture principles demonstrated through projects, and skill-sharing, creating an empowering and paradigm-shifting experience. We spend 99.5 percent of our time outdoors!
In the garden we learn how to turn waste into compost, guild-building, planting-tending-harvesting, and more; We’ll be learning about trees, “tame and wild” food and plant identification; Bird language; Shelter building; Cartooning and nature sketching; Experiment with mapping and navigation skills; We’ll explore and wander in our nearby woods; Play games, sing and write songs; Make trusting friendships, Learn from inspiring mentors; Have fun with nature games and storytelling; Learn herbal remedies and harvest edible plants and gardening like the forest, and more.
AND, what happens in a Puppet Camp?

Puppet Camp is 2 weeks of Summer fun and puppet story-telling, meeting each day, M-F from 9 am until 3 pm, with a full performance at the Traverse City Film Festival on Friday!

O’k Puppet Theater and the Pretty Good Players, sharing puppet and mask performances since 2010, will be holding a fantastic and special 2-weeks of PUPPET CAMP to prepare for a performance in Traverse City, including building puppets, set design, story-boarding, puppet and mask performance/acting lessons….Here’s a bit MORE of the Puppet Camp news:
