This will be our ninth year of exciting summer craft camps at Heartfelt.
Each camp has a theme. Children from those entering Kindergarten through 6th Grade may attend any of our camps.
Last summer, our camps were virtual due to virus concerns. Families picked up packages of supplies, and our instruction and circle times were via Zoom. We are again planning virtual content for our camps. If the Covid situation is greatly improved and it is deemed safe to gather in person, we will.
The craft camps at Heartfelt are fun and varied! Our camp themes this summer will be:
Crafts from the Past
Favorite Crafts 1
Dog Lovers’ Crafts
Favorite Crafts 2
Sea Creature Crafts
