Norwood – The Kawartha Potters’ Guild is giving Camp Oochigeas a boost thanks to inspiration from its youngest artisans. For the past two years, youth at the Guild’s summer camp have sold pottery with profits going to their chosen cause and this past year they picked Camp Ooch, a residential camp for children with cancer that has grown to offer programs at Sick Kids Hospital, its Ooch Downtown site on Bathurst Street and other regional treatment centres.
