Program Highlights
This camp is designed to provide a fun and creative outlet for young makers. Our campers will have the opportunity to explore their artistic side through a variety of craft projects, including candle making and soap making.  Throughout the week, campers will learn the basics of candle and soap making, including how to select and blend fragrances, pour and set wax and soap, and create unique designs. In addition to these hands-on projects, campers will also have the chance to participate in other craft activities, such as painting and drawing. Not only will campers create and take home their own handmade products, but they will also learn about the science behind these crafts and develop important skills such as problem solving, creativity and attention to detail. We can't wait to see what creative projects our campers come up with!
