Changes to our Summer Camp

Note to Parents

Please be advised that our summer camp will start July 13th at the Berkeley Cultural Center, the old Berkeley School on St.Johns Road, Pembroke. 


Full payment is due with registration form to secure your child’s space in camp due to demand and waiting list.


Note: The start date depends on the the number of kids enrolled minimum of 8 campers.


We have reduced our camp fee due to the camp restructuring.

Due to this change we will not be offering potters wheel in our summer camp. We however will ensure the the campers have an unforgettable pottery experience, lots of pottery painting, clay hand building, crafts and canvas art.


 We know that Covid-19 has caused a lot of financial stress and we appreciate your support, so we have lowered our camp fees even more to assist you!



****REDUCED CAMP FEES

Please note we will not be including the potters wheel due to the structure and close teaching it requires. However, campers will explore the potters world working with clay hand building and pouring casting molds! (This is reflected in the reduced fee)


Limited to 12 kids per week providing plenty of social distance seating


Camp Hours: 9am - 5pm

Early drop off starts at 8.30am * NO extra charge


Weekly - full days * $200

We will not be offering half day camp as each camper will be assigned their own bin with their weekly projects materials. These bins are given out the first day of camp labeled with their names. We have taken this extra step to prevent any contamination, therefore we will not be offering potters wheel and that is reflected in the reduced rate.


Please send your child in clothes you don’t mind them getting dirty and an old cloth or towel, it’s going to be a artsy fun time!

Pack a trash free lunch

We will have plenty of hand sanitizer for all to use, all surfaces are cleaned after every project, signs will be posted around the room to remind campers of the required guidelines to keep us all safe and healthy.


Upon arrival before entering the facility all staff and campers will have their temperature taken and hand sanatized.
