JUNE 24 & 25, 2017
Who can attend?
Adults 21 years or older interested in spending a weekend outdoors, meeting new friends and learning new craft skills. You do not have to be a seasoned "crafter" in order to attend, and we welcome all levels! Those who attend should be comfortable sharing a bunkhouse, and prepared for a rustic camping experience. (No running water or electricity. Vault toilets. Lots of bugs.) Craft-A-Way Camp is only for those who have been accepted. Spouses and significant others are welcome, but they must apply, be accepted, and pay separately. Sorry, no children or pets allowed.
***Craft-a-Way Camp is an inclusive, welcoming, and accepting pop-up community. We respect ourselves, others, and the differences between us. Please keep this in mind when deciding whether or not to be a participant of camp.***
What will we be doing?
Learning new crafts, meeting new people, taking walks, morning yoga, singing around campfires, eating... the usual camp stuff but with almost constant making!
What does Craft-A-Way Camp cost?
The 2017 cost for attending both full days, and sleeping overnight is $195.00 per person.
You will also be required to have a vehicle permit to enter the park. You can buy a Recreation Passport when you enter for $11.00, and it's good to enter all Michigan State Parks until your plate tabs expire. You may purchase the permit at camp, if you wish. If you have a Recreation Passport for Michigan State Parks already from renewing your plates, you do not need to buy a vehicle pass.
What does the cost cover?
The cost covers all the workshop materials, instruction, lodging, and snacks.
Can I attend just during the days and not sleep over?
Because Craft-A-Way Camp is a community-building event, and more than just a crafting workshop, we require our campers to stay overnight and be present for the full 2 days. If you are not comfortable sleeping in close quarter bunk beds, roughing it and being adaptable to whatever the weather throws at us, this may not be the right event for you.
Count me in! How do I sign up?
*Applications for the 2017 season are now closed.*
We have a limited amount of spaces for Craft-A-Way Camp, and because of this, not everyone who applies to camp will get in. We try to strike a fair balance between returning campers and new ones each year.
We will begin accepting applications for this year's camp from May 10th, until midnight May 25th.
If you don't get in this year, please apply again for another year! Conversely, if you attended in the past, we can't guarantee you will get in this year.
We will keep a waiting list for last minute spots that may open up.
Acceptance notification emails will be sent out by May 27. Once accepted, be prepared to make your full payment for camp within one week. This is so we can ensure that all spots are filled. Payment information will be sent with your acceptance email. Acceptance is at the discretion of Craft-A-Way Camp.
