Handbuilding: Children use pinch, coil and slab techniques along with stamps, cookie cutters and molds to create and paint fun and unique projects. Each child picks any project out of our project choices, or can create out of their own imagination. Usually 2 projects can be made on any camp day.  All kids must bring a nut free lunch or snack to have during a short mid camp break. 

Full day Campers will be given an afternoon nut free snack. The afternoon schedule will include a craft activity, movie and weather permitting, we will take the afternoon campers to the Park West Playlot on Wrightwood Ave for a short break.
