Grocery Stores are filled to the brim with exciting textures, products, smells and more! Makers will spend the week making the ultimate play sized grocery store. Each day we’ll explore a new department, tackle new materials, processes, and themes. Think felt food, cereal boxes, DIY Sushi and pizza, paper flowers for the floral department and a healthy dose of cardboard creation for displays, products, and a check out stand.
On the last day, we'll set up shop. Campers will be able to "buy and sell" their creations to each other.
PRODUCE AISLE: Felt food! We’ll design cut and stitch our own felt food extravaganza! Think fruits, veggies, and more.
CEREAL AISLE: Pop-Art Cereal Box. We’ll explore the intersection of art, commerce, and design while campers use cardboard, paint, vinyl, and all of our upcycled goodies to create a multimedia cereal box complete with a toy surprise inside.
BAKERY DEPARTMENT: Bakery Day! We’ll use colorful oven bake clay, salt dough and papier mache to create delicious (looking) baked goods.
FLORAL/CANNED GOODS/PREPARED FOODS: Makers’ choice: Be in charge of the floral department and create one-of-a-kind flowers using felt, tissue paper and more. More into the canned goods? Design the packaging for your own line of soup, then fill the can with your own DIY fake food creations. String spaghetti, anyone? Love the ready-made foods? Let's make pizza slices, sushi and more!
OPENING DAY! We’ll build our cardboard shop, make some sweet DIY grocery bags then we'll shop, play and revel in all of the grand opening glory!
For campers ages 5-11. All campers work collaboratively and we differentiate instruction based on the abilities of each camper. Think of it as a one-room schoolhouse, summer style. Note: our camper age range is a non-negotiable policy. Please do not register your child if they are not between the ages of 5-11 during their camp session. We reserve the right to forfeit your child's camp reservation if your child does not meet the age requirements. Each week of summer camp is limited to 22 participants and staffed with two super talented instructors and one teen intern. Camps run 9-3pm. We do not currently offer early drop-off. Add optional aftercare available until 5:30pm Late pick-up may be subject to a $1/minute fee up to the $25 aftercare charge. Please pack a hat/sunglasses, water bottle and a nut-free lunch for your child. We will walk to a nearby park for recess each day. We will provide a morning snack. Gluten and dairy free option available. Closed toed shoes are required. We will do our best to resolve any problems as they come. However, we reserve the right to excuse a child from camp if they are harming the experience of others, without refund. Let's have fun, explore & create! CANCELLATION POLICY: Please check your dates carefully. All camp registrations are non-refundable but are transferable to another child or session (if available). Camps fill fast. We cannot guarantee placement in another session. Date change or account credit requests must be made no later that 14 days before your session. No credits/refunds will be given for cancellations due to illness or last-minute plan changes (14 days before the start of your registered session).
