Program Highlights
Welcome to the wonderful world of machine sewing! Whether you have a budding fashionista that craves making her or his own clothing or a crafty kid interested in learning how to create a purple unicorn, then this camp may be just the thing! Skills taught range from learning how to use the sewing machine to measuring, pinning, cutting and then putting patterns together. The Handwork Studio knows that at this age it is all about choice. With a plethora of sewing patterns to choose from and bolts and bolts of tempting fabric, every camper will have ownership in what they choose to make in this fashion and machine sewing program. All materials and supplies are included, and no previous experience is necessary.

Lunch Option
Don't feel like packing lunch in the summertime? Try our lunch option. Campers will be served a nutritious and balanced meal with various choices. Daily offerings will include one entree (salad, sandwich or grill item) one small drink, and one snack or fruit. Cost: $6/day, $30/week. Campers are encouraged to sign up in advance if interested in this option, although cash “drop-ins” will be accepted. The lunch option is not available for Junior Bunks (most three-, four- and five-year-olds). No refunds/credits for missed days/weeks.

Extended-Day Program
Interested families may enroll in the extended-day option when registering. Campers may enroll in the Early-Bird Program, the After-Camp Program or both. Families who need this service occasionally or in an emergency must contact the director, and cash payment must be received the day the service is provided.
Note: The After-Camp Program is not held on the last day of camp, Aug. 4.
