Then we start building with fabrics, cardboard, beads, trims and other treasures from our fabric room. Younger children (age 6-7) will make small and sweet apartments, while older ones will build complete houses. Everyone loves this camp, so sign up now.

Endangered Species (Two weeks to choose from)
Choose an animal that’s endangered and sew a (customized) Poekie of it, we’ll help you research, write and make a beautiful book about it, then we’ll design and build a cozy habitat for your endangered Poekie (just like we build our houses, only they’re different).
Before camp starts, we’ll email an extensive list of animals to choose from, and afterwards we’ll donate $55 to WWF for you so you can adopt and receive their plush animal.

Parents and kids alike love this camp. There’s a sense of camaraderie in the group as we learn about the plight of many different animals and what we can do to save them. We use only high quality materials in this class and create an experience which will have a lasting value.
