Toys & Games Camp at Clapping Hands Farm!
July 1 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until July 3, 2020
A joyous week of pure playful fun! A week of romping and running and creative cooperative games, along with some traditional favorites (yes! Capture the Flag!). Jan Burger, the king of play, joins us to lead games; Louise Omoto Kessel will lead the Toy Making workshop. This year’s featured projects have not yet been selected but previous years have included everything from traditional folk toys to hydraulic robots! Your children will spend the week entertaining themselves and one another using simple materials and raw imagination! Old fashioned toys and handmade games—cats cradle, dominoes, hop scotch variations from around the world… In the afternoon during Anything Goes, some of our favorite toy making projects will return: parachutes, stomp rockets, hula hoops, homemade board games, nine-men’s-morris are all on the list of possibilities. For those that require MORE running around, there will be plenty of running game options in the afternoon as well! This is a great “entry level” camp for younger campers and new campers.
We at the Chatham Arts Council are delighted to provide the only online calendar exclusively dedicated to Chatham County arts events–performing, literary, and visual arts. Get out there and get inspired!
