Summer Day Camp

Good Dirt Summer Day Camp (Ages 8-16)

Let your kids beat the summer heat while getting creative in a cool, fun environment. 

 Every class day starts at 9am prompt and every day there are new projects to explore and most importantly, every day every child will get time on the pottery wheel (since we’ve found this is their favorite part of our camp). As a result each camper will complete multiple items which will be family keepsakes. Some of the projects we offer are:

  • Lots and Lots of Wheel Time. Students will learn the basic fundamentals of throwing. They will daily create the wheel-thrown pieces they want, trim them, and prepare them for firing and glazing.
  • Slab-Built dioramas (under the sea, safari, tropical forest themes, to name a few)
  • Painting a pre-cast ceramic items such as a piggy bank or a box (ala color-me-mine)
  • Fun Coil pot building, that we put our own spin on, reaching for heights.
  • Creating animals and creatures from our favorite books
  • And every camper will tie-dye their own Good Dirt Apron. (Campers who attend additional week-long camps will be allowed extra wheel time instead)
  • Each camper will be provided with a new apron and 12# bag of clay (Some children who do more wheel throwing will require the purchasing of additional clay). All tools are provided. Students need to bring a snack as a 15-minute break is taken in the middle of the camp.

Our standard half-day camp sessions are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.–1 p.m. for ages 8-16. $200 plus tax. All Campers are required to bring their own lunch and drink.
