Why should kids have all the fun? Take a trip back to summer camp with our Stay-Cation Summer Camp for adults! Let NUMU's exhibit on California's natural beauty (Et in Arcadia Ego) inspire you to use nature in art, crafts and food. Join us as we hang out on the patio and make sun prints, plant miniature succulent gardens to take home, make seed bombs, use sidewalk chalk to create a mandala, try modern lemon bars, learn how to use edible plants in ice cubes, and enjoy them in refreshing iced tea infused with botanicals.
