Today campers will spend a day in the life of Wilson Bentley, the hero of Snowflake Bentley, the Caldecott-Medal-winning children’s book. Wilson, a boy who saw snowflakes as small miracles, was determined that one day his camera would capture the wonder of the tiny crystal for all to marvel at. After reading the story of Snowflake Bentley; campers, armed with cameras and a keen eye, will hike through the grounds snapping their own unique nature photos. We will create our own art gallery and fill it with photos and handcrafted snowflakes. Our art opening will also feature hot cocoa, games, and more!
