Are you ready to be the best babysitter on the block?  This course provides the knowledge and hands-on skills necessary to safely and responsibly care for children and infants, including basic first aid, leadership skills, guidance on developing a babysitting business,and methods for engaging younger children in age appropriate activities. Successful completion provides participants with a Red Cross Babysitter’s Training Certification.

Campers will spend their mornings expanding their imagination and diving into the exciting world of clay.  Your camper will get their hands dirty working hands on with this dynamic and expressive art form.  At the end of the week, your camper will have completed a variety of projects that will be mailed home after we fire them in the kiln for you to proudly display! Projects may range from sculptures to pots to picture frames to bowls! Our instructors will work with each camper individually to help them create a project they are proud of!

Campers will choose a theme for their collection and will be able to reference works of local professional artists for inspiration! Campers will also get to meet some of Cleveland’s incredible local artists who will stop by as guest speakers. Each camper will leave with a portfolio of their work at the end of the session!

Edible Art
All of their life you have told your camper the same thing “food is for eating, not for playing”.  At camp, that is not the case!  In this unique and exciting camp, campers will combine cooking skills with artistic style to build edible art creations. Projects will include “mouse pears,” funny face sandwiches, Oreo crafts, ice cream cone clowns, edible bouquets, and more. Not only will campers have a chance to explore their creative side, but they can eat their masterpieces as well!  If your camper has allergies, that doesn’t mean they can’t participate in all the fun, please give us a call and we will make sure that they also have a safe experience that they will never forget.
