Embellish Creative Camp (ages 9 and up)

Kids will experience lessons and activities guided by a variety of talented teachers. With a focus on sewing and textile crafts, we’ll be making projects with many different creative techniques. Students will leave day camp with an understanding of hand sewing, cutting fabric, using a sewing machine and ironing. Creative activities involving fabric dyeing, papercraft and other artistic techniques will be explored.

Check out our guide below to see if the Embellish Creative Camp is a good fit for your pre-teens or teens!

Age 9 and up!
All participants should be comfortable using scissors and understand safe scissors use. They must also be able to follow instructions in a group setting. We have a fun schedule of doing different projects and crafts throughout the day – participants should have the interest and attention span to take part for the full day.

Conduct Policy: Our policy is that participants behave in a way that shows self-control, responsibility, respect, and age-appropriate maturity. Horseplay, dangerous behaviour, irresponsibly using materials, etc., is ABSOLUTELY not allowed and any student conducting themselves in a manner deemed dangerous or disruptive will be held accountable and a parent will be contacted immediately to return and pick them up.

Please see our Class Guidelines and Policies before registering.

Creative Camp Projects will include:

  •          Tote bag – learn sewing basics
  •          Soft storage bins (great for a locker or closet) - Using interfacing to make three dimensional objects
  •          Bucket hat – beginner garment sewing
  •          Binder pencil case – zipper techniques
  •          Quilt as you go placemat - quilting basics and binding
  •          Craft projects – making a magnetic pin cushion, pompoms, fabric scrap cuff bracelet, fabric dyeing, and more!
  •          Demonstrations on embroidery machines, sergers, and cutting machines

Participants will also get to pick all the fabric for their projects each day – learning colour matching and coordination!

Embellish Creative Camp will run Monday – Friday from 10:00am – 5:00pm.

There will be a 30 minute scheduled lunch break each day from 1:00pm and a 15 minute morning and afternoon break. Please ensure kids are sent with lunch for Monday – Thursday. Kids can also bring snacks/drinks to enjoy during the day. Please ensure these are peanut free. We will have filtered water available. On Friday, Score Pizza will be provided for lunch (individual small pizzas with house made lemonade). We will contact you about their order during the week of camp.
