Make a #CamelCreation!


Between 1988 and 1992, Doris Duke’s camels Princess and Baby spent their summers at Rough Point in Newport. Today, you can still find camels at Rough Point — made out of plants!

Our talented grounds and gardens crew adds new plants to the sculptures every year, so they never look exactly the same. Now you can try your hand at decorating your own camel, and when we reopen check out how Princess and Baby are dressed this year!


Step 1 – Download a Camel Template, or draw your own!

Step 2 – Gather your supplies (whatever you can find!)

Step 3 – Create a masterpiece. Be as creative as you’d like! Perhaps even add plant materials to make your creation even more like our plant sculptures

Step 4 – Share your work of art with us on social media using the hashtag #camelcreations and tagging us @nptrestoration!
