Medalta’s programs are grounded in experiential learning, hands-on learning that makes it relevant, immediate, and meaningful. Medalta’s lifelong learning programs always use the rich context of the entire Historic Clay District to deliver engaging and relevant programming.

Medalta Children’s Summer Program 2024  

Each of our summer program weeks have a unique theme for inspiring and motivating the children who participate; however, every week includes similar adventures such as scavenger hunts, trail walks, active games, art projects, science experiments, and of course clay projects.

Register your children for a summer of fun in the historic “play” district!
