“Everything I hope my daughter will grow up to be is modeled by the people at Clapping Hands. They are diverse, creative, ambitious, fearless, smart, and full of love.”
– Emma Skurnick, teaching artist, parent


We're offering four NEW programs - three in-person and one online for campers ages 13 & up!

Due to the ongoing pandemic, spaces will be limited for our programs, so please register early! We hope to offer programs geared for younger campers starting in the new year and we will keep you posted on those offerings!

Please visit the 2021 Fall Workshops page for more information including detailed descriptions, camp fees and the registration link!!


We have a simple camp fee policy: No One Turned Away. Most of our campers come on scholarship every season. In 2020, 49% of our online workshop participants received scholarships.

We have started hosting in-person camps again this summer. Although our camp sizes are less than half of their usual size, our staff ratios and scholarship participant numbers have stayed the same. Your donation this season will help our scholarship program continue to thrive despite our smaller numbers.
VOLUNTEERS WELCOME to help with our in-person programs, socially-distanced work days at the farm,  fundraising projects, social media posts, and more! Fill out our volunteer form if you are interested.

“Louise does a great job of creating a safe place. What I mean by a safe place is that kids are free and comfortable to create and be themselves. Or even if they show up and don’t know who they are, they leave knowing themselves better.”
– Valine Zeigler, parent
