Fall ArtCamp! | Key West or Bust

20-November to 22-November from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM

Fall ArtCamp!

Key West or Bust Art Camp at Fort East Martello

November 20 – 22 | 9:00am-3:30pm each day

Have you ever wondered how tourists from the past traveled to Key West? Before completing US Highway 1, tourists would go to great lengths to vacation in Key West.  Spending days on a train, flying in planes that landed on the water, and catching car ferries were just some of the obstacles that travelers experienced. During this 3-day camp, we will explore these different modes of transportation through hands-on learning and outdoor field games.  Along the way, we will create souvenirs such as magnets, air-dry clay coffee mugs, mini snow globes, and postcards. Which method of transportation will your camper determine is the best way to travel to Key West?

ArtCamp! is for children aged 5-10 and takes place at Fort East Martello Museum, located at 3501 S. Roosevelt Blvd.  Campers will be both inside air-conditioned classrooms and outside on the Parade Grounds.  This camp will be led by the Society’s education specialist, Kassandra Collett.  In addition to registering online, parents will need to fill out an Emergency Contact Form, Release Form, and Camper Code of Conduct.  This will be emailed to parents and guardians after registering.  For additional information, contact education specialist, Kassandra Collett at 305-295-6616 ext. 504 or kcollett@kwahs.org.

This project is sponsored in part by the Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture and the State of Florida, with additional support provided by The Helmerich Trust.
