Kid Makers: Crafty Business Camp
UPDATE! PLEASE READ!
Crafty Business Camp will happen twice over the summer of 2019! We are no longer hosting the camp in 2018, though we are adding more drop-in Mini-Camps in its place (per parent request) to better accommodate plans so late in the summer camp season. Next year, we'll provide the finalized camp dates to you in April so you know when to reserve a week for Crafty Business!
This is a week-long series for the most intrepid of makers! If you have a kiddo who is ready for some serious crafty business, this is the camp you have been looking for!
Kids will have the opportunity to hone in on a handmade product of their choosing, design their brand, create a website, promote their business, and ultimately sell their handmade goods at the culminating Kid Makers' Market at Frigg's Mercantile.
Kid Makers: Crafty Business Camp Overview:
Day 1 - Monday - Learn (or review) how to make lotions, soaps, candles, and lip balms (will extend into Tuesday). Other opportunities may be available per camper request.
Day 2 - Tuesday - Campers select target product from those learned, determine their personal touch, and begin prepare for production day.
Day 3 - Wednesday - Mass production! Campers will make a variety of their selected product and establish a product line.
Day 4 - Campers determine a product name, create a logo, print business cards, and make a mini-website (please bring laptop if available!).
Day 5 - Labels, pricing, and set up! Campers will complete any tasks still needing their attention, set up their displays, and get ready for market!
Saturday Market Day: Campers' families, friends, and neighbors are invited to shop the kid-run Kid Makers' Market. This event will be open to the public to give campers the full Maker experience! Kids keep the profits! Coffee and hot chocolate provided.
Each three-hour drop-off session is an integral part of the camp experience, and we ask that families commit to having their child(ren) attend each day, as well as the Kid Makers' Market.
The Crafty Business Camp is limited to eight participants, and is best for those ages 9+. Please reach out with any question you may have about what is going to be an amazing week!
