Hiddenite, NC – The Hiddenite Arts and Heritage Center is thrilled to announce a one-of-a-kind summer day camp happening at the Hiddenite Center’s Education Complex (70 Hiddenite Church Rd, Hiddenite) on June 12th – 15th. The first camp of the Hiddenite Center’s Merge Summer Day Camp series features card making and terrarium building! Deborah Crowder of “Stampin’ It Up” will guide students as they create a collection of mixed-media cards. Kristen Cozart will work with students as they build their very own terrariums with live and found objects! This camp is perfect for kids who love to work with their hands and create with their imaginations.
The cost of this four day camp is $65 for Friends of the Center and $75 for non-members. The camp is divided into age groups with four to eight-year-olds meeting from 9:00 am – noon and nine to 13-year-olds meeting from 1:00-4:00 pm. The Hiddenite Center kindly asks that parents of four-year-olds remain with their child during camp. Pre-registration is required for summer camps and class sizes are limited to twelve students. Parents can visit hiddenitearts.org to access the online registration link or call 828-632-6966 to register by phone.
