Handwork Day Camp (Grades K-6)
1 week sessions 9:00am–12:00pm; 9:00am–3:00pm $530
Picture your child in the care of energetic and imaginative counselors knitting, sewing, and weaving the day away! At Handwork Day Camp, you’ll find campers sharing stories and laughs while working on a wide array of unique projects from snuggly creatures and funky tote bags to wall pendants and needle-felted sushi. Our goal is to teach useful skills in a space where campers are free to express themselves and are enveloped in creativity and fun. Whether you’re refining your skills or learning brand new ones, our camp is sure to delight! Click here for more details and photos from The Handwork Studio!
We also have a Counselor Assistant Program (CAP) for 9th-10th graders run by the Handwork Studio! More details can be found here.
