Pottery Specialty Camps

We run a variety of different camps for different age groupings, presenting different age-level-appropriate skills and techniques to create finished pottery!! We will do some wheel-throwing every week, as well as learning a variety of other skills and techniques, and complete at least two projects per week.

Pottery Specialty Camps are listed below, while (non-Pottery Specialty Camps are listed on a different page) – we are also open to trying new things if there is enough interest – use our contact form to tell us more.

Each specialty camp is limited to 10 campers per week. Cost is $275 per camper, per week.

Also, for teens who would like to participate in an evening pottery workshop, we will meet every two weeks on a Wednesday evening to learn a different skill and practice it. Click here to be directed to the Summer Teen Pottery Workshop page.

Register for Pottery Specialty Camp

Step 1: Submit Your Registration via our new registration system at MindBody Inc. – click on this box to open a new browser window and begin the registration process

Things you’ll need to know:

• Please be careful in choosing the correct session dates and times – there may be a lot of information to scroll through. If you choose the wrong item before purchase, you will have the opportunity to remove it from your shopping cart. If you make the purchase and get a confirmation that appears to not be for what you wanted to purchase, please contact us and we’ll sort it out.

• You can use the direct links by date listed above – otherwise, the link above in orange will send you to a page where you can scroll through the current calendar of Specialty Camps. That page also has a calendar search feature in the upper right-hand corner where you can focus on the date(s) of interest to you.

• Clicking on the blue “Sign Up Now” button takes you to a page where you need to log in before making a purchase. If you are an existing client of ours, but new to the MindBody Inc. registration software, you should be able to find your profile by entering your first and last name and then you will need to enter your email address in order to set up a password. There is also an option to log in using your Facebook account.

• Once logged in, you will be shown a page with your selected item for purchase. If this is the correct item, you may click on the blue “enroll” button.

(If this is not the correct item, you should be able to hit the “back” button on your browser to get back to the list of choices. If that does not work, you may navigate through the MindBody Inc. site using the tabs at the top of the page to guide you – or close that window and start again on this page. We are also available to help you during our regular business hours at 610-710-1487.)

• Once clicking the blue “enroll” button, you will be taken to the shopping cart, where again the item(s) you selected will be displayed. If an item appears that you did not wish to purchase (or appears twice), you may remove it by clicking on the gray circled “X” to the far right of the item

• Once you are satisfied that the correct items appear, you may either click on the “Continue Shopping” link to find more items for your shopping cart (such as other offerings or adding another family member’s selection to the shopping cart), or you may click on the blue “CHECK OUT” button.

NOTE: YOU MAY HAVE TO SCROLL DOWN A BIT ON THE SHOPPING CART PAGE TO SEE THE CONTINUE SHOPPING LINK AND CHECK OUT BUTTON!

• If you have any applied credit with The Center on Central, such as a gift card on file, those funds will be applied first (unless you choose otherwise in the radio button prompt). If you don’t have applied credit, this is the place where you will enter your credit card information. You have the option to store your credit card information securely on the MindBody, Inc. servers if you choose. NOTE: If you are choosing to pay the deposit only (this option is available until May 1, 2017, when all balances are due in full), YOU MUST CLICK THE BOX THAT ALLOWS YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION TO BE STORED. All failed credit card billings will be notified, and will have until May 8, 2017 to resolve their balances or risk being dropped from the rolls and forfeiting their deposits.

• Once you have completed entering your credit card information, click on the blue “PLACE ORDER” button (you may also wish to take note of our business policies at the bottom of this page). Do not navigate away from the window until your order is confirmed. You should also receive a confirmation email (you may receive 2 – one as a purchase receipt and one as a specific schedule enrollment confirmation).

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if something doesn’t seem right – we are working through this transition and appreciate your patience. We think once we all get used to the new software, it will provide you with a better registration experience!
