You already know how much we love sewing. Little kids love it, too! This camp teaches a variety of needlework techniques in addition to adult-assisted machine-sewing: each camper designs and makes a machine-sewn-quality garment (skirt or shorts). It’s a ‘big kid” camp experience for younger campers to learn about design and construction, hand-sewing, embroidery, cross-stitch and teamwork. No previous sewing experience is required and those with experience take on new challenges.
We’re small on purpose– quality over quantity, process over product. All campers are supported by dedicated Creative Counselors who get to know your child. Small groups get to know one another. We get to know your camper and their needs and interests. Students get to know their Counselor while enjoying the expertise (and personalities!) of our entire team and the encouragement of other campers developing their leadership skills. We play with important ideas, learn art and craft technique with open-ended projects of our own design, get kinda messy, make new friends and know every child by name.
