Fall Festival began as a pilot program in 2014 to provide a safe, enriching and creative program for children kindergarten through 5th grade during their school break. The program’s design was to run the usual school hours 9 AM to 3 PM for 5 days providing enrichment experiences for the children. The program was extremely well received. Enrollment filled to capacity with a waiting list.
Each day featured a guest artist, a French chef, a ceramic teacher, an accomplished musician on bells and Celtic harp, a watercolorist, and a knitter and home arts hobbyist.
What did our campers’ families have to say about this week?
“My son had a great time at camp! Now he wants to be the ‘garlic bread chef” for all our meals.” A. S.
“This camp was so much more than daycare. It was full of lots of fun and handcraft activities. Weaving and cooking were my son’s favorite activities.” S. L.
“What a fantastic fall week. My husband and I were amazed at all the cool and fun projects the children did. It was a great experience for them and we really appreciated it.” A. M. V.
“I was amazed at all the projects completed and all the activities they did. Our son is asking for more clay for projects and our daughter for more yarn for her birthday to continue weaving. I couldn’t believe they ate all the marinara sauce on Monday (they typically don’t like seeing vegetables in their food!) Every day my children were excited to attend and eager to learn more. Thank you for the positive examples you provided our kids this week.” A. G.
“Our son had a GREAT time. He loved everything about the week. He cannot wait to do this again. Don’t forget to let us know when, please.” H. B.
