Camp Create

The Old Cypress House introduces its first annual Summer Arts and Crafts Camp. Join us for 8 different weeks of FUN!!  Each week, kids will enjoy fun themes, arts and crafts, and enrichment activities, where they will be learning and having fun!! From the magical world Under the Sea to the excitement of the Wild, Wild West, your child will be learning new facts, making new friends, and letting their artistic side come out with all sorts of creative projects! Drop them off at 9 am with a sack lunch and clothes approved for dirt and paint! Snacks and drinks will be provided during their fun-filled day of activities, and by the time you pick them up at 4 pm, they will already be looking forward to the next day and the adventures that lie before them…

Sign up today!


My name is Colleen and I have taught many years of summer camps.  I now run The Old Cypress House out of my home in Prairieville and this is where the camp will be held.  We will remain on site all day and you are welcome to drop by at anytime for a visit and see what the kids are up to 🙂 Please don’t hesitate to email or give me a call with any questions you may have about myself or the camp…I look forward to meeting you and your children and giving them a Summer to Remember!

About The Old Cypress House

Mother-wife-friend-artist...I love to paint...I have always loved painting...I like to take something old and make it new again...with paint! Actually, I just like making stuff...DIY-that should be my initials! The Old Cypress House got started with a single plank of cypress wood given to me by my brother. I painted Tiger Eyes on it (LSU Tiger Eyes, to be exact...Geaux Tigers!). From that moment on, I couldn't do enough of them. I ventured into Fleur de Lis, Jazz guys...whatever anyone suggested. Then my husband helped tear down a cypress house that was built in 1889 and brought me home loads and loads of more wood, including the old cypress windows that were in the house...I could hardly contain my excitement! The possibilities are endless. This blog is going to showcase my work. It will mostly be on cypress...but, I'm sure I'll venture into other areas of art projects. I have so many ideas spinning around in my head. I hope you enjoy my work. If you see something you like or have an idea, please let me know...I'll be in my shop! "If you hear a voice inside of you say 'you cannot paint', by all means, paint...and that voice will be silenced" ~ Vincent Van Gogh View all posts by The Old Cypress House
