Tie-Dye Camp at IH Park
Tying in some fun during summer break at the Tie-Dye Camp presented by Memphis Botanic Garden, hosted at IH Park in Lakeland.
Campers learned about the many different plants that are used to create fabrics and dyes during the outdoor classroom. Each camp participant tie-dyed their own t-shirts using modern-day dyes.
After the tie-dye session, youth got creative making a few crafts, with help from City of Lakeland Parks and Recreation staff.
