Horn Island Expedition

$245 per Person |April 29th, 30th, & May 1st| Registration ends April 25th


Horn Island is a beautiful wilderness area of the Gulf Islands National Seashore. On it, Walter Anderson sought refuge from the world, wrote, and made paintings and drawings of the fantastic plants and animals he found there. WAMA is preparing another trip to take 18 people on an exclusive 3 day, 2 night retreat to this beautiful and inspiring place. We had such a wonderful experience last May that we have decided to do it again. Grab your fishing poles, tents, and art supplies and join us!!

-The "Skipper" at the Biloxi Small Craft Harbor will board us at 7:00 am on April 29th.

-WAMA will provide sandwiches, potato chips, and tea upon arrival to the island and once all of the gear is in place. (around 11:30)
-John Anderson (Walter's son) will be there to guide us, giving us a more personal experience.

-Saturday will be wide open for island fun and production of art work.

-Participants will need to pack their own camping gear, art supplies, and food (Lunch for Sat. and Sun. and dinner for Fri. and Sat.).

-Wama will provide water for the entire trip (you must carry your portion), coffee in the mornings, and a goody bag packed full of breakfast and snack items.

-The "Skipper" will pick us up from the island on Sunday around 1 pm.

-Wama, with the help of Froghead Grill, will provide a late lunch on the return excursion.

We will be sending out specific emails to registrants regarding what to expect and pack, with plenty of tips and tricks.

Please contact Heather Rumfelt at (228) 872-3164 ext.110 or educate@walterandersonmuseum.org to reserve your spot.
