Enjoy outstanding arts education with instructors from the FAC’s Bemis School of Art, set in the lush forest at the 400–acre La Foret Conference and Retreat Center. The FAC’s partnership with La Foret has a long history. Alice Bemis Taylor was one of the three benefactresses of the Fine Arts Center and had her summer home at La Foret. The Taylor Memorial Chapel, built in 1929, was designed by the Fine Art Center’s architect, John Gaw Meem.

Stretch your imagination! Experience a variety of artistic styles and techniques, including painting, printmaking, and mixed media art, while exploring elements of composition and design. Explore your acting skills, voice, movement, and characterization with theatre games, mime, and improvisation. Art and acting will come together on Fridays with a special showcase performance and art exhibit for friends and family.

La Foret staff will provide swimming in the afternoon, so bring your swimsuit, towel, and sunscreen. Each student should bring a lunch and snack, and should be prepared for a variety of activities and weather. No open–toe shoes or sandals. Students may arrive after 8:50 a.m.

La Foret is a licensed childcare premises and requires several forms for your child’s protection (Camp Health Form and Certificate of Immunization). Some require a doctor’s signature. All of the forms must be completed and given to La Foret prior to the first day of camp. Your child cannot participate until the paperwork is received. Under the current circumstances of COVID19, we will be taking extra precautions and following guidelines provided by the CDC.

Immunizations: Your camper’s doctor can either fill out and sign the attached immunization page in the Art & Acting in the Forest La Foret Camper Health Form linked below, or you must transfer the information from your signed immunization card to the Health Form and staple the signed one from the doctor to it.
