Clay Camp




2016 Summer Clay Camps!
June 27 - August 25, 2016 (no camp July 4 - 8)
Ages 6 and up

Fire up your creativity and join the fun at The Clay Studio's 2016 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. On select weeks this summer, we are partnering with Kaya Aerial Yoga in Old City to offer clay camps in the morning session and movement based camps in the afternoon.

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.

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, performances, and ice cream party. Each camper receives a free camp T-shirt!
