Adult Summer Camps

One of our most popular requests about kids camps is "Can I take this even though I am an adult?"  Well now you can! Whether you are a kid or a kid at heart, camps are fun! This year we will be offering four sessions of adult summer camp. Adults will get the full camp experience, finishing cute projects by the end of the camp.
