Get into knitting with this week long camp for kids 10 and over. The daily practice and fun projects will surely make the craft stick. Knitting is a wonderful skill that is portable and endless with possibility, making it a great travel activity for any summer trips you might have planned. Knitting is an active meditation and provides all who practice it an opportunity to connect with their hands and quiet their minds. In this camp, we will introduce kids to knitting with straight needles and beautiful, all natural yarns. Each camper will get their own set of needles and yarn to keep so that the knitting can continue beyond this one week.
