FAQs & Additional Information

Age restriction: We emphasize that this event is for teens who are from the ages of 12 - 19. We are strongly emphasizing this age restriction because it is our goal to provide teens with in-depth and age-appropriate information that may not be for little ones. 

Materials & Supplies: All learning and art materials will be provided and are included in the price. Campers are welcome to bring their own journal and items that bring them comfort. On each day there will be a take home craft as well as worksheets.

Food & Beverages: Snacks/lunches are not provided and your teen witch will need to bring their own preferred snacks/lunches. There will be a scheduled snack time/break for each day. We ask that all campers have their own water/preferred beverage and water bottle. 

About the space: The Ceremonial Moon Studio is located across the street from the Ceremonial shop on Reynolds St. in the Point Breeze Neighborhood of Pittsburgh. There is a gate and a flight of stairs leading to the Moon Studio space. We will be sitting on the floor and have chairs and pillows available for use. There may be times when we travel down the flight of stairs and across the street to the shop and times where we may take a short nature walk around the block. 

Schedule & Syllabus: There will be a schedule and a full length syllabus that will be sent directly to the email provided on July 1st which will contain a breakdown of the daily events including drop off time, snack time, and so on.
