JUNE 27 & 28, 2015
Who can attend?
Men and women 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 and pay separately. Sorry, no children or pets allowed.
What will we be doing?
Learning new crafts, meeting new people, taking walks, swimming, sitting around campfires, eating... the usual camp stuff!
What does Craft-A-Way Camp cost?
The 2015 cost for attending both full days, and sleeping overnight is $175.00 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?
We have a very 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 1st, until midnight May 15th.
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.
Before applying, please read all information on this page and the Travel and Lodging Page. Then send an email with the subject line "2015 camp application" to: firstname.lastname@example.org, including the following information:
