Summer Camp

Home / Camp / Summer Camp


 

Crack Pot camp is a fresh and dynamic way to spend a hot summer week! Join us for a fun-filled week of camp exploring clay, the potter’s wheel, hand building and surface decoration techniques in our professional clay studio.

We are pleased to be offering our weekly camps this summer, with reduced spots. Please read our safety guidelines and call or email the studio if you have any questions.

Our week-long camps run all summer long! Each student must register for the whole week of camp, with the option to attend either half day mornings or half day afternoons. Please note that this summer we are unable to provide full day camp with a supervised lunch, since this would involve the removal of masks indoors to eat. If a student would like to register for a full day of camp, their parent/caregiver must look after them during the lunch break (Noon – 1:00pm).

Projects vary from week to week, featuring several techniques. Our projects are chosen to enhance the child’s sense of creativity, accomplishment and exploration of a new medium. All pieces created in camp are glazed and fired twice to be food and drink safe. They are ready for pick-up within 2 weeks after camp ends.

This year, due to the uncertainty, we are only asking for a $20.00 deposit (plus a $2 booking fee) upon booking to reserve your child’s spot. The remaining balance will then be charged to your credit card upon confirmation that indoor summer camps can indeed operate.

COVID-19 Precautions

    All Crack Pot camps have been limited to a maximum of 6 students in order to allow us to practice social distancing in the studio.
    Masks must be worn indoors at all times by both students and staff.
    Upon arrival at the studio each day, students will be required to complete a COVID questionnaire and have their temperature taken.
