ADD ON POTTERY CAMP
All Fired Arts campers will have a pottery wheel throwing and clay hand-building experience as part of the Fired Arts Summer Camp. But, if your camper craves more time in the mud, we are offering a Pottery Camp from 1- 2 pm immediately following the Fired Arts Camp.
Pottery camp includes more in-depth instruction in clay hand-building and pottery wheel throwing, plus tons of practice time! Last year, the campers really looked forward to this extra hour and the spots filled up fast!

DEPOSITS reserve your camper’s seat at camp, and they go towards your balance due. The balance is due one week before your camp session start date, and we will send you a reminder email.
These spots fill up fast! If you are interested in being a parent volunteer for a week of camp, please contact Kristin @ 704.962.0913 (call/text). One parent volunteer is needed for each week of summer camp. Volunteers will help organize and set out art supplies, encourage kids with their artwork, and assist with clean up. Volunteers need to be able to commit to Mon-Friday 9:30 am – 2:30 pm during their week of camp, and their child must attend the fired arts camp and the extra hour of pottery camp. As a volunteer, you will receive $125 off your child’s camp session. No other discount apply.

Transferring camp weeks: If you aren’t sure which week of camp best suits your summer schedule, sign up for a week that will most likely work for you, and we can always transfer your deposit to another week as long as space allows and with written notice (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Cancelation: If you need to cancel your summer camp reservation prior to paying your full balance, we will offer a transfer of weeks or studio credit for the amount of your deposit if a transfer is not possible. If you have paid your full balance, and cancel in writing at least 7 days prior to the first day of your camp session, we will refund your payment less your deposit. Please provide written notice by email at email@example.com.
Drop off and pick up: Campers should be dropped off at Art Box Ceramics and Canvas 5-10 minutes before as camp will begin on time. Campers will be ready to go promptly at the end of camp, so please arrive on time for pick up. If you are more than 10 minutes late, we reserve the right to charge a $10 late fee. Each day, please walk into the studio to sign your child in/out with a staff member.
Behavior: We strive to create an environment for fun and creativity during summer camp. If your child’s behavior becomes inhibiting to other campers’ experience, we will address the issue with you and your child, but reserve the right to prohibit their attendance without a refund.
Photo release: Art Box Ceramics and Canvas will take photos of your child and their projects to use on social media for marketing purposes.
Release of liability: By enrolling your child for camp, you are releasing Art Box Ceramics and Canvas and its associates of any risk of liability associated with your child’s attendance and participation in camp and other related activities.
How to Register
Space is limited: If you aren’t certain of your summer plans, go ahead and sign up for a week that will likely work and we can always transfer your deposit to another week (as long as space allows).
Registering multiple children: You can register multiple children at once since the deposit owed for all children is the same. We will email you an invoice at least 7 days prior to the first day of your camp session to collect the balance due which will include the sibling discount.
Registering for multiple camps: You will need to register separately for Fired Arts Camp and Pottery Camp.
Online registration trouble shooting: The most common mistake is not selecting the start day AND time during the registration process. Once you select the start day AND time, the system will highlight the orange button allowing you to proceed with the payment process.
For questions, please contact Kristin at 704.962.0913 (call/text) or firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm happy to chat with you and answer any questions.
