They have ample opportunity to create wonderful keepsakes for the home or cottage.
Pottery is a very popular activity at Arrowhead. This hands-on sensory activity provides campers with the opportunity to create beautiful pieces to take home.

From the moulding of the clay to the firing, campers then take their pieces and add the colour of choice during the glazing process.
