Look it’s Ashley!
Mid October we happened to be driving by Madison Wi. and decided to stop on in and spend some time with Ashley. It was great fun! She showed us around the downtown area and we even had a bite to eat. (nothing like Michelle’s food :) So we got a talkin about one of Ashleys favorite topics- Arts & Crafts. She was wondering if we could do some more cool activities. “like what?” we wondered. She thought, maybe we could do more age appropriate activities so like older kids could do copper enameling and more clay, even some woodburing or something like that. We thought it was a great idea and so Ashley is busy working on how she can make Arts & Crafts better.

This year we are so excited that our pottery program will get a blast at camp.  Our new Arts & Crafts Director Laura has years of experience in pottery and working with clay. So this year more than ever before we hope to see campers sculpting, and working on the wheel and kiln firing all those projects. All this means that there are going to be wonderful projects coming out of the ARTS & CRAFTS CASTLE this summer. Stuff like sculpted animals, multi-colored tiles, giant coil pots, and delicate wheel-thrown cups and bowls.
Let nature be a part of your clay work by taking a smooth slab of clay and press natural forms into it so that they leave intricate textures. You know, acorns, twigs, leaves, and tree bark, they all leave amazing patterns. then this can be turned in to a vase or some other vessel or just a fired the way it is.
Swift Nature Camp’s 
summer pottery program is going to be one of our most exciting programs in the summer of 2009.  There’s almost an endless variety of pottery projects to make which you can take back to home your family and friends.

At Swift Nature Camp our Arts-and-Crafts programs flourish because the we recognizes the value of a balanced program of activities that includes Running around, Teamwork adventure, and Art. Equally important, these programs flourish because we accept campers who just try new things. Be it, tye dye, pottery, painting, leather or popsicle stick art. Yet, at the same time we challenge campers to refine their crafty skills, solve problems, and create new works of art. Our goal is to help define the brains and souls of our campers. SNC staff becomes actively involved in the mission of positivly nurturing youth development. In this way Arts and Crafts is a part of this process. And as an bonus, some lucky grandparents or parents and may get a beautiful piece of art.... or a lanyard keychain.
