Course Overview

You choose your theme and make a scene!  Whether it's monsters, mushrooms and gnomes, fairies or your own family; you will create a three dimensional diorama as your main project.  First, you will build a wooden box, using hammers and drills.  With colorful wool, you will learn how to “paint” a background with needle felting and sculpt 3 dimensional characters. You will also wet felt 3 dimensional hand puppets and finger puppets.There may also be time to felt game boards and pieces and as well as to learn how to use wool to add designs to your own clothing.  It will be a fun week of using wool as our artistic material and being playful and creative together.This camp is open to youth ages 10-16.

Camp Schedule

Camps are held from 9 am-4 pm each day with an hour break from noon-1 for lunch and downtime. All campers must bring their own bag lunch to eat each day.

We encourage kids to bring a book or quiet game for their break and they will have access to outdoor space in good weather to play during lunch break.

COVID Safety

  • Health and safety of all participants is our top priority. 
  • Unless the Covid situation changes, masks will not be mandatory although any camper has the option of wearing a face mask during the day while at camp. 
  • Camps will be limited to 10-12 campers with 1 or 2 instructors for a total group size of no more than 14 people.
  • Indoor activities will take place in our large classrooms, with windows open for ample ventilation. Instructors will teach outdoors when possible.
  • Campers who feel ill will be asked to stay home.

Attendance

Because projects worked on at camp build from day to day and learning extends throughout the week please only sign your child up for camp if they will be able to attend all five days of the camp week.

Pick Up and Drop Off

You can drop your child off at their camp location up to 30 minutes before the start of camp each day.  At the time of registration, parents/guardians may authorize their child(ren) to walk or bike home from camp alone. All kids not walking/biking must be picked up by an authorized parent/guardian within 10 minutes of the end of the camp day.
