At Timber Ridge we highly promote and encourage children to be creative. Just like any other skill, creativity can be learned and exercised.
Our Arts and Crafts program is directed by a full time middle school art teacher with skilled and passionate counselors assisting.
Our Arts and Crafts room is located in the lower level of our visual and performing arts building, and is equipped for a wide variety of activities. Specialty areas include:
- woodworking shop,
- model rocketry building
- fully equipped ceramics area
One thing you may notice while walking around Timber Ridge is that art is everywhere! Each summer we choose a camp-wide art project that is created entirely by campers.
These projects can vary greatly, but there is one constant among them all: they encourage campers to engage in art and create something of their own, as well as striving to make the campus more beautiful.
Sometimes the camp project is a mural (as seen above), and sometime it is something a little more creative. To this day, it isn’t uncommon to find decorated rocks hiding throughout camp from almost 10 years ago!
Other examples include murals on our swimming pool shower house, green house, and theater walls.
