The Village (Ages 5-7)


The Village is an area where each age level has its own name, home base and staff who help children make individual choices on the activities they’d like to participate in.

Village Weaving

"I like weaving the most."
– Munroe, 5½

Village Weaving introduces the ideas of patterns and colors. Campers are taught how to manipulate the materials to create beautiful works of art.

Village Pottery and Handbuilding

"I like working with clay with my friends that I made at camp."
– Sadie, 7½

As children discover the importance of touch and feel, Village Pottery gives them the opportunity to mold a natural substance into anything in their imagination. Many techniques are learned using different tools and with help from experienced staff. Villagers are also given the choice to learn how to throw clay pots on a kick wheel.
