Summer Camp is a tradition for many children across the country. Learning new skills and enjoying the outdoors while basking in the sunshine is a recipe for fun. One of the drawbacks of summer camps is the humidity, and bugs. Nobody likes getting sunburned or getting a bug bite.
Instead of battling the sun and all those pesky mosquitos, kids can enroll in the Summer Book Arts Camp at Western New York Book Arts Center. Beginning on July 6, 2015 from 1-4 p.m., kids ranging in age from 7-13 can participate in numerous activities led by community artists. Some of those activities include:
- Letterpress and Screenprinting (T-Shirts)
- Origami bookmaking & hand-stitched journals
- Altering books & Book Sculptures
- Button making
- Block printing
- Plus more to be announced!
The summer book arts camp will take place on Monday July 6, 2015 to Friday July 10, 2015. The camp will run from 1-4 p.m. on each of those days.
Children are to be dropped off between 12:30 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. No children can be dropped off before 12:30 p.m. They are required to bring their own lunch each day, but snacks and water will be provided. The cost to attend the five-day camp is $175 per child for members of WNYBAC and $200 for non-members. Pre-payment is required for all workshops at WNYBAC. A cancellation fee of $25 will be assessed if cancelled less than 1 week ahead of the workshop. Cancellations with less than 48 hours will not receive a refund. Sold out classes will accept a waiting list.
