Days of Knights and Unicorns
During Medieval Europe, the heraldic unicorn was a symbol of bravery, intelligence, pride, healing, and more. Come explore the world of knights, kings, and queens of old. We'll learn about armor, coats of arms, and about life during the Days of Knights. Campers will create all kinds of heraldic and royalty inspired artifacts, and at the end of the week we'll share our accomplishments in an art exhibit for friends and family.
