IN-PERSON CRAFT CAMPS

CAMP DATES

July 12 – 16
July 19 – 23
August 2 – 6

OVERVIEW

Join HCCC this July and August for week-long, In-Person Craft Camps for ages 5 – 8. HCCC has implemented COVID-19 safety guidelines to help protect the health and well-being of campers, teachers, and staff, including the requirement for all to wear masks, submit to temperature scans, and socially distance (see full list of safety guidelines below). Camp capacity is limited to a maximum of 10 kids per session.

This year, campers will explore various materials and processes in contemporary craft, including projects in our Craft Garden. Kids will practice critical thinking skills through conversations in the galleries with teaching artists and learn how to look and talk about works of art. Through individual and group projects, they will investigate materials such as clay, fiber, and metal.

Campers will begin the week by making their own sketchbooks and exploring our resident artist’s studios. Projects include jewelry making, natural fabric dyeing, and polymer-clay miniatures. Camps are designed to encourage creativity, experimentation, and self-expression, while introducing various craft techniques. Each day includes time in the galleries, an hour lunch break, and hands-on studio projects.

CAMP INFORMATION

  • Craft Camp begins promptly at 9:00 AM and ends at 2:00 PM. Drop off begins at 8:30 AM; pick-up ends at 2:30 PM.
  • Campers must pack a nut-free lunch and snack to eat during the supervised lunch.

COVID-19 SAFETY GUIDELINES

The health and well-being of our campers, teachers, and staff is our highest priority. The following measures will be implemented to help ensure individual safety, based on health and safety guidelines:

  • All campers, teachers, and HCCC staff must wear a mask at all times.
  • All campers, teachers, and staff will be required to have their temperatures scanned upon entry. Anyone with a temperature above 100.4 degrees will be asked to submit to additional temperature scans and will not be allowed to enter and may return only with a doctor’s release.
  • Camps will have a reduced capacity by 62% (maximum of 10 campers per session).
  • Campers, teachers, and staff will practice safe social distancing in the galleries and classroom by remaining six feet apart.
  • Each camper will be assigned their own workspace, and campers will not share and/or touch one another’s materials and supplies.
  • Camp classroom and other high-touch areas (bathrooms, door handles, etc.) will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized multiple times each day.
  • Lunch will be eaten outside or, in the case of inclement weather, in a well-ventilated space.
  • All students, staff, and faculty must use hand sanitizer upon entering the building, and hand-sanitizing stations will be provided in the camp classroom.
  • Drop-off/pick-up procedures will be adjusted to avoid groups in close proximity to one another.
