In Response to the River; Calling young writers & artists!

FREE Summer Camps!

This summer The River Foundation is partnering with Southwest School of Art and Gemini Ink to offer two unique summer camps focused around Confluence Park and its connection to the San Antonio River. Each camp will explore the integration of science and art and provide ecological learning through creative expression in new and innovative ways. To ensure the safety of our campers and their families, both of these offerings are going virtual and will be completely free of charge!

Each virtual camp will include a mixture of live videoconferencing with instructors, pre-recorded activities, storytimes, video chats with science ambassadors, and virtual tours and treasure hunts at Confluence Park. Art supply kits will be available through curbside delivery at Confluence Park prior to the first week of camp. Camp dates are weekdays July 6th – 31st for elementary and middle school students.


Southwest School of Art and the San Antonio River Foundation are excited to offer the third year of Nature of Art Summer Camp 2020. This program will be held virtually but will still have all of the fun and exciting learning of our in-person camps. Campers will get to work one on one with artists, community presenters and each other. Let’s bring the great outdoors, indoors with this virtual camp. Interested students will need to have access to a digital device by which to attend the camp. We will be using Google Classrooms for this program. Supply kits for registered
students will be distributed at Confluence Park. This program is free and has limited space. Students may only be registered for ONE week of programming.

Gemini Ink and the San Antonio River Foundation invite 4th-8th graders to participate in a free creative writing workshop inspired by Confluence Park. The workshop will explore, celebrate, and reflect on the San Antonio River and its role in our community and will integrate photography and drawing. Together students will produce a handmade zine under the guidance of local poets.
