Join HCCC this summer for week-long, in-person Craft Camps for ages 5 – 9. HCCC has implemented COVID-19 safety guidelines to help protect the health and well-being of campers, teachers, and staff (see safety guidelines below). Camp capacity is limited to a maximum of 12 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.


  • 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.
  • All materials and supplies are included in the camp registration.


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. Camp sessions are subject to change or cancellation due to current COVID-19 conditions.

  • All camp instructors will be wearing a mask at all times. Masks are optional for campers.
  • HCCC highly encourages all campers to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • Camps will have a reduced capacity by 62% (maximum of 12 campers per session).
  • Campers, teachers, and staff will practice safe social distancing in the galleries and classroom by remaining six feet apart.
  • 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.
  • Drop-off/pick-up procedures will be adjusted to avoid groups in close proximity to one another.
