MAKING FRIENDS AND CHANGING LIVES THROUGH CAMPING. Nestled in the majestic pines on Little Hills Lake near Wautoma, Camp Lakotah offers a co-ed summer overnight camp program unmatched in excellence.
I will teach young artists to draw Super Mario Bros characters, as I guide the process step-by-step. After drawing the figure, we will color them in, and students can use any coloring utensil they prefer! Crayons, colored pencils, markers, paint, pastels, the sky is the limit! While this is an art-based course, we want to also feel like a community, and get to know others who share a love for Super Mario Bros. Each camp offered focuses on a specific set of characters. The course descriptions tell you which characters are in that camp.
HAWS is dedicated to strengthening the relationship between people and animals. We know to truly accomplish this we need to focus on educating the next generation of leaders – future leaders like your child(ren)! Our camp kids are taught to show compassion for all living things through animal interactions and character-driven programming. Campers will be walking dogs, cuddling cats, hiking trails, holding snakes and more! They gain respect for the animals and confidence as caregivers and advocates.

CAMP DESCRIPTION: Our Summer Camps are our most popular summer program! We offer 4 different week-long camps (Monday – Friday from 9 – 11:30am). Each camp week has a different theme and their day is filled with ballet classes, crafting and more! Our camps are designed for children ages 3 (must be pottery trained) to 10! But, our camps are pretty popular and we have several kids older than 6 who come back every year (and often multiple camps weeks) because it is that fun.
