Arts & Crafts
Color your world with Waukeela Arts & Crafts! This program is a great way to show off your creative side while making some colorful and glittery camp souvenirs. We have an endless list of fun summer projects including macramé and beaded jewelry, tie-dye clothing, hand-dipped wax candles, decorated picture frames, abstract paintings, and so much more.
The list of cool crafts you can make with clay are endless! Always a camper favorite, our Pottery program will teach you how to sculpt, glaze, and fire your clay creations that can be decorated and taken home as souvenirs. Our Pottery studio has four wheels so classes are kept small and all instruction is highly personalized to ensure that your vases, masks, mugs, and bowls are handcrafted to perfection.
Are you ready to stitch and sew all summer long? We can teach you how to knit scarves, sew pillows, and make memorable fabric postcards in our Textiles program. We have yards and yards of fabric and yarn available to you for all the flags, hats, and other colorful crafts that you have always wanted to know how to make.
