Arts & Crafts

Head to the second story of our historic boathouse and explore your creativity! We mix it up with a variety of media; basketry with natural materials, watercolor, knitting with colorful yarn, candles, and simple jewelry making are some examples.

Creative Writing 

There’s something about being outside that makes writing so much more alive. From poetry to short stories, budding writers will be inspired to turn thoughts into words.



Everyone in camp gets excited about our drama performances. Never been onstage but always wanted to try? Clearwater is the perfect place to step out of the wings to an enthusiastic audience!


Writing and performing songs is a Clearwater tradition.  If you play an instrument, bring it to camp–we’ll jam!


Campers in this small class will learn to take better photos with their own cameras. The Northwoods is a beautiful setting to hone these skills!


Wind chimes, an animal sculpted from nature, a clay tile imprinted with natural objects–you decide what to make. Pottery classes include hand building and mastering our two brand-new pottery wheels.
