Fashion Camp Theme: "4-H Lights, Camera, Fashion"
The Fashion Board chose this theme to reflect their personal excitement about fashion and the attitude that the campers will adopt as they travel through the experiences at camp. In addition to basic sewing fundamentals, a few of the educational activities for campers include: a sewing caddy, tote bag, a reading pillow, a community service project plus more. You will return home with completed projects and ideas to host your own fashion workshop.
Deadline for registration is Wednesday, December 1 by 4:30 p.m.
