Senior Drum Circle!

by Chris

Monday, March 18th 2013 at 5:16pm

Back by popular demand, Zelda Hotaling will be joining us again this year with her wonderful array of Native American Art and her very special workshop, “Senior Drum Circle”. This will be a special week with Zelda for the senior campers only. They will explore the Native American art of drum making during this week-long activity which will fit into their daily schedule at camp. They will be able to create an “Awiskini” drum of their very own that will be with them on their life’s journey long after they leave the peninsula and Adirondack behind.

This workshop is limited to 10 Seniors only and will be offered during both first and second sessions. The fee for this workshop will be $100.00 to cover the materials cost. If you would like to sign up your camper, please email
