Students Escape Remote Learning Fatigue At 2021 Youth Spring Camps

By Cathy Niland | 4.13.2021

Leading up to last week’s Youth Spring Camps, the excitement in the air was palpable. After more than a year of remote learning, we could not wait to see students tap into their creativity and get hands-on in the fine and industrial arts.

Campers came to The Crucible with a new level of excitement, many eager to show off their work and share their inspiration. Two dragons named Harold and Gerald were born in Youth Ceramics I, a drawing robot named Kaylee came to life in Youth Gizmos, and two students each named Oscar formed a new friendship while helping each other carving their names in Youth Woodcarving and Sculpting.

It’s hard to believe but 2021 Crucible Youth Summer Camps start in just two months. Youth ages 8-18 can register for classes in eleven of our departments, including Welding, Woodworking, Glass Fusing & Slumping, and Ceramics. Camp spots are filling up fast, so don’t wait to register!
