Snow Day Activities at BRAHM PDF Print

Winter has finally made an appearance in the High Country, and area families now have an educational and fun option for children out of school due to inclement weather. The Blowing Rock Art and History Museum and Blowing Rock Parks and Recreation are expanding their day camp offerings to include Snow Day Camps from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. for K-6th grade. Camps will be scheduled as soon as an announcement on Watauga County schools is made. Parents may call (828) 295-9099 ext. 3006 or visit for details. Each camp will have 20 openings available on a first-come-first-served basis. Activities will include art- and history-related lessons, gallery tours, an art project, a snack, and, if the weather allows, outdoor recreational time at the Blowing Rock Parks and Rec (please send children with warm jackets).

At least two adults will be present for each camp, along with a student volunteer from Appalachian State University’s College of Education. The cost for the full-day program is $30 per child for the general public and $25 for BRAHM members. Campers should be dropped off at 10 a.m. at the BRAHM Educational Center entrance (enter through the lower level of the adjacent parking deck) and picked up at 4 p.m. at the Parks and Rec department at Memorial Park. All participants must have the required forms on file with the Museum; parents of children attending a BRAHM camp for the first time may download the forms from the website and drop them off the day of the camp.

All materials and snacks are provided. Parents must register students for each snow day camp individually by calling Virginia Falck at (828) 295-9099 ext. 3006.

The mission of the Blowing Rock Art and History Museum is to promote the visual arts, history and heritage of the mountains through educational programs, exhibitions and significant permanent collections. For more information, visit or call 828.295.9099.
