“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.”

SUMMER CAMPS & PROGRAMS ARE HERE! We're offering an array of art and nature-based camps every week, in addition to zoom workshops, this summer from May 31- August 13, 2021. Please visit the Outdoor Summer Camps and Online Summer Workshops pages for more information including detailed descriptions, camp fees and registration links!!
Chatham County Public School Students are eligible for FREE CAMP through the Summer Enrichment Program.  Please just LET US KNOW on our registration form that you are participating in that program and let us know the school your camper attends.

GIVE TO OUR SCHOLARSHIP FUND


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
