The Vault summer camps functional and creative


CLINTON — As many saw in last weeks Clinton Journal, the Vault has had some summer camps going on in and around the Vault and the community. 

The construction trades camp built the she-shed and dog house auctioned on Saturday June 26. 

The culinary arts camp baked all the treats for Saturday’s auction and open house and the creative arts camp had items on display also.  These camps are going on all summer to give the community’s youth good things to do with their time in the summer. 

Pastor (Chef) Paul Stroup and Connie Unrue led the culinary arts camp, while Joetta Wiesemann is leading the creative arts camp.  There is also a mechanics camp planned for in the near future. 

The culinary camp made various cookies, rolls, and other goodies.  They also prepared their own dinner on the days they were baking. 

The creative arts camp has been tied up in macrame and emdroidery, hued in oil painting, glass painting, painting tennis shoes, watercolor.  They have tackled, or will tackle, pastels, charcoal, graphics and photography tattoo art,  pencil drawing, mosaic, and Kintsugi* among other creative arts ideas. 

(*Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the breakage with laquer dusted with powdered gold, silver, or platinum.  The Japanese philosophy of Kintsugi treats breakage and its repair as a part of the history of the object, rather than something to disguise.)
