Join HCCC for this one-day camp, where kids can bring leftover cardboard boxes from the holidays and transform them into city-themed works of art. 

Campers will work together to cut, glue, and paint cardboard to create an imaginary city—including cars, skyscrapers, and other urban forms. At the end of the day, campers will combine their projects, and family and friends will be invited to a reception to enjoy refreshments and take a tour of their metropolis!

The Cardboard City Day Camp is appropriate for children between the ages of 5 and 12.  Kids are encouraged to bring their own empty cardboard boxes to use for camp projects.
