Camp Bloom: Bloom where you are planted!
July 6-July 10. 9AM-12PM
Join Andrea Ferment, owner of Honeygirl Flowers, at the Hanover Arts and Activities Center for the return of Camp Bloom, a week of flower fun! In this second year, sessions will run the week of July 6th from 9 a.m.-noon. Register soon, because this year we are limiting campers to 7 lucky kids, and camp will fill up fast! Campers (rising third through eighth-graders) will learn the basics of creating beautiful fresh flower arrangements, of course, but flowers can be used for so much more!
We will create:
fresh flower wristlets; graceful centerpieces for our own homes and for Ashland restaurants; mini-arrangements to add to tabletop vignettes; floating flower arrangements; fresh flower pieces for our hair; bouquets to cheer local nursing home residents; and more…
clay bowls and jewelry impressed with floral stamps and natural material; leaf prints; giant paper flowers; hand-painted vases; pop art flowers created from recycled materials; long-lasting wreaths; and more…
We will also delve into the science of flowers by learning how to identify different types of bark and leaves, learning about their functions for plant health, and using that knowledge in art projects to appreciate their beauty, too!
We may also leave the Center behind for several walking field trips to local gardens and businesses, and we will hear from local experts and business owners about how they work with flowers.
“My girls absolutely loved Camp Bloom! Every day they came home with some sort of fresh flower arrangement or flower-themed craft. I don’t know how they did everything they did in just three hours a day. Everything Andrea and her sisters did was top-notch! They blew my mind with all the activities and opportunities for the girls. It was a very well thought-out and well-done camp. My girls are ready to go back now! I wish they had an adult version!”
-Kasey Buckland, mom to campers Addy & Katey Grace
