From July 8 to 14, Emmauel Deschodt blends his art with boxing to host wood-painting workshops, boxing classes and a live performance of his Punch Portrait. Karu Paper Studio visits the resort July 15–21. Founder Anouk Vigneau creates pieces through five paper workshops. Gabrielle Noelle arrives Aug. 5–11, hosting three workshops for kids and families to create pieces prompting imagination, exercising curiosity and creating a bond with the environment.


In addition to these workshops, this year’s summer camp offers a wide range of activities. Every day is filled with games and sports like foam parties, paddle tennis and ocean scavenger hunts with JOALI’s resident marine biologist. Kids will also love stargazing with the resort’s resident astronomer, tree planting, organic gardening, yoga classes, cooking classes, pottery classes and more.
