Haunt Camp

Wallowa County's Spookiest Art Class for Kids!
2023: A Haunting in the Bermuda Triangle

HAUNT CAMP is an extracurricular class that teaches design + fabrication to Wallowa County high school students. Our team of collaborators will build an avant-garde haunted house for the whole community to enjoy. It’s more than just a Halloween goof: students will learn technical skills used in well-paying creative careers.

HAUNT CAMP is a visual & performance art project that gives teens creative control while teaching the skills needed to realize their vision.

Youth art programs often fail to demonstrate a practical link to jobs & real-world application. This can discourage students from taking classes to develop their creativity, and leaves participants ill-prepared to enter the creative workforce after graduation.  HAUNT CAMP teaches in-demand technical skills and introduces teenagers to a wide range of career possibilities through a fun curriculum—all while creating a Halloween attraction for our local community.

HAUNT CAMP classes are open to high school students entering 8th grade through recent graduates

It's Back for 2023! And Spookier than Ever!
Open to the public November 3-4 at Cloverleaf

The Director

JR Rymut graduated from Rhode Island School of Design and has been a professional creative fabricator since 2014. She now splits her time between teaching art in rural Wallowa County and working in Los Angeles for museum exhibit, film set, & taxidermy studios. Her active professional connections provide a unique opportunity for youth to learn the latest, most relevant techniques being used in the industry today. She finds the thought of building an exhibit designed by teenagers extremely funny.

HAUNT CAMP has been the dream since 2019.
