GoggleWoods Arts Camp
Campers can now explore the art world on a whole new level at the GoggleWorks! Our campers spend the first half of their day at the GoggleWorks taking classes from trained Artists and Instructors, then return to Bynden Wood Day Camp in the afternoon for a jam packed day of fun!
The Day Camp hours are from 8:30AM until 4:15PM, Monday-Friday. Families and campers are greeted in front of Bynden Wood Lodge and the day begin with new friends, songs and Flag Raising. Campers are then transported to the GoggleWorks Center for the Arts for in-depth morning art classes. After their morning classes, Campers return to camp to enjoy lunch and participate in afternoon activities.
Campers, ages 7-13, are assigned to their Tribe of 8-12 campers of the same age with two adult counselors.
