If you have kids/tweens eager to explore their creative side this summer, Southborough Recreation is offering two special camps. This month, they’ll host a morning Ceramics camp. And next month, the local kids theater group will return to put on a one-week day camp, capped by performances.

Ceramics — for 10-14 yr olds
Monday through Friday, July 22nd – 26th (9:00 am – noon) at Rec Dept, 21 Highland St

Come join us and get a little messy making fun clay projects. Explore various hand-building techniques, such as pinch, coil, sculpt, and sgraffito, and use your imagination to create your own one-of-a-kind clay works. The projects include making an animal ceramic statue planter, a watering thumb pot, a berry bowl, and more! Kids will also get on a wheel to make a teapot, mug, plate, terracotta water hydrator, and salsa bowl! All materials included.

The camp costs $195 each. Click here to register.
