Ceramics, Arts, and Crafts Weekend at Camp Michigania

If you love relaxing and working on ceramics, arts, and crafts, this weekend getaway at Camp Michigania is for you.

Just south of Petoskey, along beautiful Walloon Lake, sits Camp Michigania, the home away from home for Michigan alums and their families.

This crafty weekend will be led by our amazing staff of ceramics, arts, and crafts experts, and you will be able to take advantage of our fully-equipped CAC Center to learn how to make everything from stained glass to kiln-fired pottery. Throughout the program, we’ll also offer serene wilderness hikes, rock polishing, and bonfires by the lakeshore. Our program includes lodging in heated cabins, receptions, meals, and activities.

CAC Weekend Activities

Book Club and Movie Screening

Join us for a discussion and movie viewing around “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.” Don’t have time to read it before coming to camp? We’re going to be showing the movie during the first night so you can catch up while crafting! 

Canvas and Cocktails

Take part in a night of inspired acrylic panting. We’ll provide canvases, cocktails, and lots of paintings for inspiration or replication. 


Campfire locations include lakeside or in a clearing in the woods. You bring the conversation, and we’ll provide the s’mores!

Ceramics, Arts, and Crafts

Create stunning artwork, thoughtful gifts, and mementos of your time at Michigania.

Faculty Forum Speaker

Hear from a University of Michigan faculty or staff member as they provide insight into an area of expertise.

Family Games & Tournaments

The Activity Room in the Education Center offers a home for family game nights and board-game/card tournaments. Games and cards may also be checked out for use in your cabin.

Guided Hikes

Explore Michigania on a guided hike that will take you to different beautiful camp locales.

Rock Polishing

Find a Petoskey Stone around camp or bring a rock with you and take it to our nature center to enhance its beauty.

Specialty Workshops

Acrylic Pour: Create gorgeous coasters, vases, or ornaments with specially mixed pouring paint. This paint flows and mixes to create unique and unusual designs. 

Freeform Fused Glass: Building fused glass directly on a kiln shelf allows for more flexible and creative projects. This is a rare opportunity that isn’t possible during our summer sessions. Plus, we are bringing in special iridescent glass to really make your projects shine. 

Tie Dye: We’ve brought this outdoor craft indoors just for this weekend. Be the first to try our new offering of napkins and bar mop towels. As a bonus, we are offering you a chance to try your hand at messy-but-gorgeous, ice-dying technique! 

Candle Making: Have you ever tried candle carving? You’ll start by dipping a plain candle into the wax to create layers of color, then carve into the candle and twist and bend the wax to reveal the beautiful layers.


Do you think you are an art expert? Compete with your team in categories such as Name that Artist, Name that Masterpiece, and more. The best part? Our trivia game will take place while you are working on your masterpiece.
