Summer Day Camp - 2017
Every day students will spend some or all of the day creating with clay. Students hand build projects such as mugs, critters, plates & bowls as well as enjoy personalized instruction on the wheel. Each summer, every camper takes home fabulous works of art!
After lunch we enjoy the fully equipped park or doing drama and games in our air conditioned space.
Dance weeks: During these weeks, campers, should they choose, will also learn a simple and fun dance routine to round out the week's activities. Parents are invited to stay for the performance on Friday afternoon.
