Camp Bloom Fall for Flowers
Camp Bloom, Jr. is back! Join Andrea Ferment, owner of Honeygirl Flowers, as she pairs with the Center in our quest to create after-school arts programming for the Hanover Community.
“Fall for Flowers” will be held on four consecutive Thursdays in October from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Campers will explore the beauty of the flowers, the trees, and the natural abundance of the Fall season in a series of fun crafts and activities. Each craft or activity will use a different artistic technique and material, and each will allow participants to explore and appreciate the natural world around us in new ways. Most of these classes will also feature short presentations related to the crafts given by local artists and experts. These sessions are most enjoyable for kids in grades 3-8.
Likely activities include:
-preserving fall leaves in glycerine to create colorful, long-lasting artwork with them
-crafting pretty, delicious edible chocolate flowers to top frosted cupcakes
-making gorgeous, air-dry clay bowls using real leaves as the templates
-making stunning, fresh flower headbands and earrings and modeling them in an outdoor photo shoot
Come to the Center to welcome Fall with us!
Class dates are four Thursdays in October: the 8th, 15th, 22nd, and29th. Cost per camper for all four dates is $80. We must register five campers to hold the classes; no more than 10 campers can register. Camp Bloom events do usually fill quickly, so grab a friend and register soon!
Attendees must commit to attending/paying for all four sessions due to the need to purchase and prep materials in advance. If an absence is necessary, a friend or relative can attend instead.

Andrea started her studio florist business two years ago and has made hundreds of arrangements for weddings, holidays, non-profit fund-raising events, holidays and more. She taught in the Virginia public schools for thirty-five years, including the last twenty years at Gandy Elementary in Ashland. Her Camp Bloom events for kids combine her two big work passions perfectly!
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! It was a very well thought out and well done camp. My girls are ready to go back now! They blew my mind with all the activities, and opportunities for the girls.
