Join the team of The Handwork Studio (click here for more info) as we explore the sweet world of candy making, cupcake decorating, cake pops, and cookies! Each week is themed so that campers can indulge themselves in the joy of learning to make each yummy treat.  Kids will dip, frost, bake, and decorate.  We'll end the week helping campers to sew (on a sewing machine) their own "goodie bag" in which to take their creations home. We will nibble as we go; however, we encourage responsible snacking and send most of the goodies home at the end of the week to share with family and friends.

We are excited to have Wilton Brands sponsor our Sweets, Treats, and Eats camp by providing the supplies, materials, and goodies!  Since 1929, Wilton has been the worldwide leader in cake-decorating products and education, and we are honored that they have chosen to work with us to provide an exceptional experience for your camper.  No matter what you’re baking or decorating – from cakes and cupcakes to cookies and candies – Wilton’s got you covered with the tools, tips, tricks, and inspiration you need to bake your world happy. Wilton believes every day is a good day for treats, and we couldn’t agree more!
