Campers should bring snacks and lunches daily, including beverages. MOCA cannot provide refrigeration or microwaves. Trips may be made to nearby galleries or the Main Library next door (at the MOCA site), or to nature trails or the UNF Library (at the UNF Campus) for lunch or programs that parallel the art curriculum of the session. Campers will be supervised at all times while outside of the classroom. Please provide sunscreen.
