General Information

Although there is no advanced sign-up required, some crafts are available only at certain times when staff is scheduled to instruct and assist. To determine this or so see a full list of projects, please refer to the Activity Schedule for the time period in which you will be staying with us (up to 1½ weeks prior). You may request alternate dates/times and we will try our best to accommodate you if staff is available. Because craft projects change throughout the year, the activity schedule is the best location to find a current list of projects.

Our projects are introductory-level, however some will be more challenging than others. The quality of the finished project will vary based on the skill level of the participant. Certain projects, such as ceramics require overnight firing and will not be ready until the following day
