10 Clay Camp Sessions Summer 2024!

Regular Summer Camp sessions run Monday - Thursday from 8:30am - 11:30am. Camps are led by experienced potters and early childhood educators. Camps are perfect for kids ages 6 - 14. Campers are divided by age and focus on different projects each day that fall into the larger theme of the session. Projects are often subject to campers' interpretation (ie a crawfish in a crawfish hole project may evolve into an alien in an alien dwelling).

Each Friday, we will host a separate camp that is wheel focused. Wheel focused Friday camps cost $70.
