Summer Camp Afternooon Program Note: We have increased interest in an afternoon program for the two weeks of summer camp, July 18 through 29th. We will be designing a relaxed afternoon with lunch, restful activities, art projects, and games. The cost for extending the program to 3:00 will be an additional $50. Campers will need to bring a bag lunch. As we are shaping this afternoon program and the staffing around the age groups, we encourage interested families to contact Kathy Watko, firstname.lastname@example.org, as soon as possible.
Intensify the heat of summer by working with wool. Come wash your fleece and prepare it for work. The course will involve carding our washed fleece, dying it, spinning it, weaving or knitting with it, or perhaps using a drum carder to make roving for spinning colored yarns, and felting.
