CAMP COMIC BOOK

Camp Comic Book is a non-profit project of DINK and The Denver Zine Library and is a mixture of workshops as well as the marquee annual one-week youth camp. The program looks to host and provide under-served and inner city youth in the mountains of Colorado as a part of an outreach program that is part “Outdoor Adventure ” and part “ Literacy and Art Education”.   Students will spend half of their days in an active outdoor learning experience to connect with the environment and the other half creating comics or art that communicate their experience.
