The 1,400 square foot space was dedicated in 2002 and is a gift of Elizabeth B. During the Summer Exhibition Season, Parks is proud to feature a diverse breadth of Native American artwork and jewelry, as well as the creative talent of the many visiting faculty artists.
The 205-acre campus is a naturally beautiful setting with clean air, alpine forests, mountains and meadows. Highlights of the season will include exhibits of faculty work from the Summer Program’s themed programs – Hot Clay, Metals Week, and the Native American Arts Festival.
The campus features large dormitories, residence halls, dining hall and a snack bar.
Services include the health center, bookstore and laundry facilities.
We gain exclusive access to the entire camp property, including all: fields, buildings, sports facilities, bunks, the dining hall and waterfront so there are no kids in site!
While we don’t claim to be a five star resort, we only partner with the most beautiful summer camps across North America.
Since there’s no party more fun than a costume party, we introduce themes for each bash well before the camp weekend, so everyone can prepare for the parties.
