Summer Camps

Looking for something FUN and EDUCATIONAL for your kids this summer?

The Center will offer several socially distanced camps this summer for your kids. Space will be very limited!

Hanover Arts & Activities Center will take the following precautions during summer camp programming:

Campers will be asked to complete a daily screening each morning assessing health and that of family members in a camper’s household.

Campers with family members that are COVID positive will not be allowed to attend camp.

Should a camper present symptoms while at camp, they will be separated from the group and a parent must be available for immediate pick-up.

Campers will wash hands upon arrival following CDC guidelines.

Hand sanitizing stations will be available throughout the building.

Campers over the age of 8 must wear masks during camp unless participating in an outside activity. The Center will provide masks for each camper and staff.  Masks from home are acceptable.

Campers must provide their own snack sealed in a zip lock bag and bring their own container of water. (The Center can provide a bottled water or a pre-packaged snack if necessary-handled only by staff wearing gloves.)  Sharing food is prohibited.

Campers will be socially distanced in the building and each camper will have their own work table. All work tables and highly touched surfaces will be cleaned throughout the camp period.

Each camper will have their own materials and will access them separately each day.  No materials will be shared.

Restrooms will be disinfected between uses.

Parents will be required to provide a medical form (standard) and to sign an additional COVID waiver before children can attend camp.





CAMP IS FULL.  Please email to be placed on a waiting list or to receive information about upcoming workshops.

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

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

Camp Ashland History Camp with Ashland Museum

August 3-7


Ashland Museum and Hanover Arts and Activities Center present Camp Ashland 2019, a history camp for all rising 2nd – 6th grader history buffs. Curious kid campers will explore how people lived in the 19th and early 20th Century in Ashland.

What did children wear and what foods did they enjoy in the 1800s and early 1900s? What did they do for entertainment without TVs, Movies, and X-Box? How did they communicate without cell phones and tablets? How could you tell if a hobo had visited your neighborhood?

Led by a National Parks Service Ranger, a team from Ashland Museum and The Center, campers will go back in time to experience life in the 1800s and early 1900s. Campers play the games kids played 100 years ago. They will help wash and dry laundry the way kids would have in the 19th and early 20th centuries. They will have go on an archeological dig at the old hotel site. They will practice first aid as a Civil War medic. There will be “cannon ball physics,” crafts, and tours of historic buildings in Ashland.

Registration & more information HERE!
