All children and staff must be vaccinated prior to the start of the program. 

We will not use a waitlist this year, all spots will be booked on a first come, first served basis. 

The Summer 2022 kids program is full- we will make spots available as cancellations occur. 

Summer Kids Clay Program 2022

Indigo Fire is a friendly, well-run pottery studio.  Throughout the year, we give students the space, materials and freedom to be creative.  This culture informs our summer kids program.  Our studio and staff nurture a peaceful, non-judgmental environment.  Throughout each week, kids will be challenged by specific projects as well as given plenty of time to pursue whatever ideas are inspired in the moment.  

Where focus happens naturally

First time in the summer kid's program?  Here's what you can expect:

​Each week is lead by a head teacher, at least two counselors and a councelor in training (CIT) if they are available.  With groups of up to 12, there is at least one staff member for every four kids. 

Indigo Fire, and specifically our summer kid's program, promotes a non-judgmental, friendly environment for children to learn, have fun and make new friends.

Kids have access to great materials, teachers and sources of inspiration.  Like our year-round classes, the summer program has a strong focus on the pottery wheel.  We believe however, that kids have more ability and opportunity to be creative at the handbuilding table.  The wheel provides a physical challenge that pairs well with this.


Throughout the week, kids will be presented with many projects, mini games, puzzles and tasks.  We always do some tie-dye mid week, and use Friday to glaze the week's creations. 

Participants must be 10 years old to enroll. 

We don't give exceptions to this based on experience or maturity. 

 Each week of the program runs Monday-Friday, 9am-3pm.

The kids are escorted to the Clay Pond park for lunch every day (weather-permitting).  This is a valuable time for them to run around and play games.

Please note that the first week of the program is slightly abbreviated due to the 4th of July holiday, which is reflected in the price.
