Finding heART in nature.
Truckee Summer Camp
This year's theme is ALL THE COLORS, and will give your young Creative wings to fly through dance, art, poetry, & creative fun inspired by and housed in nature.
Throughout the week, campers will connect to the natural environment around them, using the beauty found there as a foundation for their creative expression. We'll explore and experiment with words, watercolors, acrylics, creative movement, and organic materials. We will cultivate and celebrate each unique creative voice in our circle of campers, and help each other grow in confidence and creativity! This camp is for everyone.
There is flexibility within age groups to accommodate busy summer schedules. Please email with questions.
Health & safety for all is a priority. The group is limited to 15 campers & we will operate in compliance with all local health and safety recommendations.

Jennie Pitts Knipe
With over 25 years of teaching kids & adults alike, Jennie brings a passion for creative expression and a joyful approach to all she does.
Dancing since she could stand led to a Master of Fine Arts in Dance degree and the chance to work with students throughout the western states and abroad. Jennie also loves to bake, craft, and experiment with all things DIY. She is deeply grateful to live in such natural splendor and finds so much inspiration in our Truckee/Tahoe "backyard!"
Jennie truly believes that dancing & creating is powerful medicine that helps us to heal, cultivate joy, and connect meaningfully with those around us. She can't wait to help young Creatives develop their expressive toolbox, and for them to find their unique place in a circle of new found friends and collaborators.
