Yes! You may have caught on. We are doing all our favorites this year. After 2 years of COVID + Stress + anxiety, we want our students to be excited and remain positive during camp. Making sure they are happy and healthy is our main priority. We want you to know we are taking COVID very seriously and keeping up with cleaning throughout each day. We are also licensed by the state and are keeping up to date with guidelines. It's been a tough couple of years for the children and we want this summer to really be about the joy of creating. If your child doesn't want to take part in a certain image, we will give them another option. We never want to see a camper unhappy and are always very accommodating. All you need to do is tell us! So lets have a wonderful summer together, creating memories and works of art to treasure.

Choose from full-day or half-day weeks or individual days. We have a teen drop-in option and projects for all ages. The Giggling Pig is a fully licensed day camp by the State of Connecticut.
 This requires us to obtain each child's health records. Either use ours, or bring in a copy of your child's school medical form. 


 PLEASE NOTE: Each child MUST BE registered prior to camp start date. PAYMENT IS DUE AT TIME OF REGISTRATION. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS ON CAMP. Camp is non transferable. (Thank you for your understanding!)

SCULPTURES

We haven't done a week of sculpture in a few years. So of course we brought it back for you! Students will not take home pieces daily. They will work on a few pieces though the week and will take home on FRIDAY. If you sign up for individual days only, we will have either a ceramic or smaller clay project that can be completed in the day. This way no-one misses out on the sculpting experience. We will be sculpting a bowl and filling with veggies and fruit! EXCITING!

Frequently Asked Questions for Summer Camp

What Will my child do at camp?
Half day students: Will work on a project that will be completed each day and be ready to take home. Images shown As AM.
Both groups will also have time for creative free time. From creative collages to jewelry making, art areas will always be available during breaks indoors and outdoors. Everyday, if weather permits, the children will have time in our new larger outdoor area. This area is fenced in with proper shade. There will be art stations outdoors and room to just play and have fun. There will also be a picnic area for snack and lunch time.


What should I pack for my child?
Half Day Students: A nut free snack
Please label everything! 


Can I make up a day if my child is sick?
If you bring in a note from your child's doctor we will gladly save your child's day to use by the end of summer.

Are there refunds on camp?

We do not offer refunds on summer camp.
Summer camp purchases, MUST be used by the end of the summer.  Classes cannot be used towards anything other than what they are purchased for. Example, you cannot apply summer camps towards art lessons or gifts. One of our main reasons for not offering refunds is: We are a small business! We are an art business. Art supplies are ordered in advance for every student. We train and staff our camps, and invest a lot of money into being licensed, having a Dr on call should we need one and making sure every child has the best possible camp experience. Thank you for your understanding.
