Town Square Community Center is excited to host a new summer program and learning experience for children kindergarten through 5th grade: Camp Chocolate. Two sessions will be held for separate age groups: June 12 through 15 for grades k-2, and June 19 through 22 for grades 3-5. The camp will run from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm on Friday. The price for the program, including materials, is $25 per child.
Participating children will get to learn about the origins of chocolate, where chocolate comes from, and how it is made with the instruction and supervision of Heather Rawlings Davis. They will then design their own chocolate bar, adding their own special toppings and ingredients, before packaging it and selling it at the Friday summer market at Town Square. All proceeds from sales made at the market will benefit a local nonprofit organization of the children’s choice.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for kids to learn in a fun, engaging way,” said Kate Salas of Green Lake Renewal, the non-profit that operates Town Square. “We are so grateful to our donors, our volunteer, and to Heather Rawlings Davis, Camp Chocolate instructor, for bringing this great event to our community.”
Heather Rawlings Davis is the founder and owner of Appleton-based chocolate company Polliwogs.Co, where she produces and manufactures what many consider one of the best chocolate sauces in the world. Her products can be found in Whole Foods, ShurFine, and restaurants across the country.
