Spring Break Camp - Handcraft Adventures: Morning Session (ages 11-14)

Course Overview

North House Folk School and the Grand Marais Art Colony are teaming up to offer a weeklong camp for 7-14 year olds. Spend half the day at the Art Colony, and half the day at North House! (Note: You must register for the Art Colony sessions seperately via their website)

At North House, we’re planning a week of sewing, dyeing, carving, and building—it’s an ode to our favorite meal: lunch! Students will work with wood and fibers to assemble a unique set of utensils and other lunch-wares. By the end of the week, students will go home with a new set of skills, a set of tools with which to eat lunch, and their very own hand-made lunch box— ready for many lunches to come. AM and PM session activities will vary slightly to be age appropriate.

Morning session (9am-12pm): Ages 11-14
Afternoon session (1pm-4pm): Ages 7-10

This is the Morning Session for ages 11 - 14. Click here for the afternoon session.

Students who register for register for a session at North House and a session at the Art Colony will walk to their afternoon location with adult supervision during lunch time. Full day students must bring a lunch from home each day.

Spring Break Camp is supported by funding from the Cook County Community Fund
