Unleash the Boundaries of Creativity in Your Camper

Onsite camps and at-home art camp kits run the months of June through August

MENTOR, OH (June 3, 2020) Summer is here and in its traditional sense, that means summer camp!  The staff at Busy Bees Pottery & Arts Studio in Mentor have not only prepared a blockbuster lineup of themed camp weeks for a unique summer camp experience but have also arranged the studio for social distancing and put safety protocols in place.  

Art camps are offered Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm as a full day session or half days from 9am to 12pm or 1pm to 4pm.  Enrollment is for five full days or half days per week.  Each week of camp revolves around a specific theme and each day campers will create multiple pieces of art ranging from pottery to canvas to glass fusing.  The summer lineup looks like this:

  • Week 6/8-6/12 Let’s Go Wild
  • Week of 6/15-6/19 ClayDaze  
  • Week of 6/22-6/26 Choose our Own Adventure  
  • Week of 6/29-7/3 Food Fight!  
  • Week of 7/6-7/10 Busy Bees Art Camp of WitchCRAFTS and WizArtry
  • Week of 7/13-7/17 Blast Off!
  • Week of 7/20-7/24 Magical Kingdome Creations  
  • Week of 7/27-7/31 Let’s Celebrate!
  • Week of 8/3-8/7 Surfari

Weekly sessions include all materials and supplies, small class sizes and individual attention. Campers will be creating with a variety of mediums including clay, pottery, canvas, glass fusing and mosaics. Full days all week camp fee is $299 and half days all week is $199 with a 15% discount for every sibling registered. Children must be between the ages of 5-12, a kindergarten graduate and able to cut with scissors.  To keep with safety guidelines, there will be fewer campers per session than in past years, don’t delay in registering.     

Realizing not everyone has a comfort in leaving the house this summer, Busy Bees developed an in-home  camp concept called Art Camp Minis, a perfect alternative to keep young artists busy.  Choose from 24 themed kits ranging from sports time to unicorn magic, shark week, fun with food and even Christmas in July! Kits are priced at $60 each and all kits include three projects.  Projects vary from clay, pottery, canvas and/or mosaics and include brushes, paints, online Zoom access to interact with the Busy Bees’ team of artists and tip sheets for the project types. 

“We wanted every child to have an art camp experience this summer whether it be in our studio or at home. By adding the interactive feature via Zoom to our Art Camp Minis, kids at home will be able to receive creative guidance as if they were in the studio,” states Beth Brinton, owner of Busy Bees Pottery & Arts Studio.

Summer is for fun and Busy Bees Pottery & Arts Studio is ready to supply the fun and keep the campers busy so you don’t have to! The art studio is also open 7 days a week for walk-in fun for all ages.
