Clay Camp




2015 Summer Clay Camps!
July 6 - August 28, 2015
Ages 6 and up

Fire up your creativity and join the fun at The Clay Studio's 2015 weeklong art camps, designed for ages 6 and up! Campers expand their imaginations and explore the exciting world of clay through a wide range of projects and building techniques. Whether working with sculpture, claymation, or wheel-thrown pottery, students learn in a supportive, small class setting with plenty of individual instruction and inspiration.

Campers are welcome to participate in a half-day camp or stay for a full day (excluding Claymation which is a full day.) Half-day camps meet for three hours each day (from 9 am – 12 pm or 1 pm - 4 pm) and include a short snack break. Half-day camps do not include a supervised lunch break. Supervised lunch is available for half-day campers  or campers who want to stay for the whole day for $20 per week and must be registered for separately. Supervised lunch includes lots of games, field trips to local galleries and historical sites, and more! The full-day Claymation camps meet for 7 hours each day (from 9 am - 4 pm) and include the hour-long supervised break for lunch. Parents should provide snacks and lunches. Extended-care is available from 4:00-6:00pm for $50 per week and must be registered for separately.

Returning this year, will be two programs for teens (ages 13-18) interested in throwing on the wheel and/or sculpture August 17-21 & August 24-28. 
More information regarding camps (emergency contact forms and general info) will be sent to registered families one week prior to camp.  

Every Friday parents and campers celebrate with an exhibition of works in progress and ice cream party. Each camper receives a free camp T-shirt!
