Tomorrow Marks the Launch of Summer Camp 2013!

We've been working very hard the past few months to continue to make our programs better and better for you and your children. We know as a parent, you have lots of choices for your kids so we want to wow you by teaching your kids to make really cool projects, have them learn something new, create an environment where they will have a really fun time, and make sure they feel valued and loved with our amazing team of counselors.  We hope you join us!


New Exciting Happenings for Summer 2013:
1) We've kept our full day 2012 pricing the same for the summer 2013 in most all of our locations!  
2) Added New Locations - This year we are happy to work with:
  • Germantown Academy in Fort Washington, PA
  • Park School in Baltimore, MD
  • Lawrenceville Day School in Lawrenceville NJ
  • College of St. Elizabeth in Morristown NJ
  • St. Stephen's and St. Agnes School in Alexandria VA
  • Congressional School in Falls Church VA
  • and back to Newtown Friends School in Newtown PA
3) Of our 26 locations, now 16 of them have before and aftercare!
4) For our Fashion and Machine Sewing Camp,  we will continue to use Simplicity Creative Design Group patterns as well as teach from Brett Bara's book Sewing In a Straight Line.  Brett is a author, television host, blogger and designer and every camper in this program will receive an autographed copy of her book!
