Participants will visit the Nez Perce tribe to meet Kaya, travel to colonial days with Felicity, go to New Mexico to join Josefina and then to Civil War times with Addy. Along the way, campers will enjoy stories, craft projects, and other hands-on activities. Search for the keyword "art" to find this program in the JCPRD's Activities Catalog and online listings.
