Sidwell Freinds Fashion Bootcamp Summer Camp at Sidwell Summer over at Sidwell Friends School is wrapping up their first week. The kids are having a blast making projects and forging new friendships.  You can see some great photos on their Facebook Page.

The fun continues next week and we are elated that they will be hosting Fashion Bootcamp starting Monday. This program is a 3-week offering where aspiring young fashion designers will be taken through a fashion journey!

From sketching and draping to sewing and modeling, campers can watch their fashion dreams come to life! They will gain real life experience by going on a Fabric buying field trip and participating in a workshop led by, Jay McCarroll, season 1 winner of Project Runway.

As an exciting culmination to the program, campers will have the opportunity to model their designs for friends and family.  Camp includes a fashion sketchbook, a take-home sewing kit, and transportation for the field trip.This unique and award-winning program is for kids looking to expand on already learned machine sewing skills or those who have never touched a machine. Our counselors are trained to work with campers of all levels.

You can choose from two sessions:
Session 1 runs from June 16th-July 3rd (no camp on July 4th)
Session 2 runs from July 7th - July 25th
