Summer Camp Crats


Hi Everyone:

Miss Laura Here! We are having a great week at the American Camp Association Tri-State Conference in Atlantic City this week. We are honored once again to teach a class to our peers in the industry. I’m here with Miss Megan, Miss Amanda and Miss Meredith (Miss Julia is enjoying her last week of maternity leave with her new son Asher!) This year we are teaching Creating Camp Spirit Through Crafting. The purpose of the session is to make a team spirit scarf (see directions here) and to find some fun uses for those old camp tee shirts which keep campers connected all year long.

Below are some links to the projects we discussed in class:






If you are interested in bringing The Handwork Studio to your camp you can learn more here.

Update:  Here are some pictures of the awesome spirit scarves that were made at the session!
