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!

Adding PM Programs

Sidwell Summer has a number of afternoon options that can be paired with morning Handwork to create a full day of camp fun for your child!  If participating in AM Handwork and then a different PM program, campers will eat lunch and be escorted by staff to the afternoon option you select.  

PM options are listed below:

LEGO® Engineering – (Grades 2-5)  Available 6/11-7/6 and 8/6-8/17.  Led by instructors from Play-Well TEKnologies, campers build elaborate objects, structures, and vehicles all while exploring fundamental principles of engineering and physics.  Handwork + LEGO® = $675.

S’More Fun – (Grades K-3)  Available all weeks.  S’More Fun is just as it sounds – an afternoon of Some More Fun after a structured morning program. The S’More Fun option includes LEGO®, Board Games, Arts & Crafts and more!  Handwork + S'More Fun = $530.

Note: After selecting AM Handwork during registration, you will then be directed to choose from the above PM Camp options, or to "Opt Out" and dismiss at 12:00pm.
