The Ranch at Laguna Beach, a National Geographic Unique Lodge of the World welcomes explorers for a nature immersion camp to explore, create and retreat!
WED- SAT 9am - 1pm Jun. 26 - Aug. 31
Venture to our historical Scout Camp, to meet Farmer Leo and a few feathery friends! We'll learn about planting, harvesting and composting in the garden. We create art to take home and round out our morning with games and lunch!
THURSDAY Plein Air Art
Campers design and craft nature journals and practice sketching in plein air! Creatives learn how about the artist influence in Laguna Beach and critique different kinds of art at the resort from living art to National Geographic photographs. We'll make it back just in time for lunch and a sandy game.

Explorers take a nature hike and spot signs of wildlife in the canyon. Uncover animal tracks and make clay casts of our favorites to take home. The day's excursion will lead us back to property for camp lunch and more fun!
