Adult Nature Camp
Thursday, Nov. 9 at 6 p.m.
Nature Center of Cape May, 1600 Delaware Ave., Cape May
The focus of our Adult Nature Camp will be to transport our “campers” back to their childhood. First, we’ll pick up cool things off of the beach like shells, driftwood and flotsam to be used in the camp’s “Adult Arts & Crafts” programs. Then, we’ll employ various media to transform these items into beautiful works of art which will make thoughtful and treasured holiday gifts for your friends and family. Remember, these camps are for adults only, so campers must be over 21, and BYOB is your option. Sign up for all classes in advance and receive one class free along with an art apron to wear. Pre-registration is required since space is limited. Call (609) 427-3045 to sign up. Cost is $20 per session for New Jersey Audubon members and $25 for non-members and includes all materials. Your registration cost includes a materials and supplies fee, but participants are encouraged to bring any extra items that they so choose. Classes have been scheduled from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
