Camp at a Glance

Whether you are an aspiring fashion designer or a creative camper looking for new skills, immerse yourself in the wonderful world of machine sewing! Designed with older campers in mind, this program is all about choice and creative expression. Campers will be taught how to read and use a wide variety of Simplicity Creative Group patterns, our exclusive pattern partner. In addition to a catalog of over 20 patterns, campers get to choose from dozens and dozens of bolts of tempting fabrics to bring individual style and flare to every creation. There are more than enough options to keep you coming back week after week and year after year!

Before Care (7:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m.) and After Care (4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.) are available through Big Blue Summer, and additionally, Handworks Studio offers After Care for full day campers (3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m, $125/week).
