Camp Crafty Challenge

Welcome, campers! We're so glad that you've elected to participate in our week of camp. The main goals of our summer camp are to encourage you to stretch yourself and have fun. To that end, we proudly present our (knee slap drum roll, please) Crafty Challenge!

Crafts and summer camp are natural companions. Why mess with tradition-let's get our craft on! Some popular camp crafts include:


God's eye

Pinecone birdfeeders

Wood necklaces



wood necklaces





How to Participate

So what's the challenge? Since we're cool like that, we're going to offer you some options. If you decide to participate, you may do one (or s'more) of the following:


1. Create one (or s'more) of the craft projects listed above.

2. Create one (or s'more) of the craft projects listed above, taking photos of the process and then designing a page about making it.

3. Create a scrapbook layout inspired by or incorporating one (or s'more) of the craft projects. (You do not have to create the project itself to use the inspiration or technique on your page.)


By midnight MDT on Saturday, July 18, upload an image of your project or layout (or both) to our CK Summer Camp Arts and Crafts Lodge group. Just join the group, and upload your creation. Winners will be chosen in a variety of categories, including Editors' Choice and Campers' Choice. To vote for a project for Campers' Choice, use the "Love it!" button for that entry.


What are the prizes? Glad you asked! Winners will receive an amazing package containing a selection of summery products from your favorite manufacturers. Stay tuned for more details.


Prizewinners will be announced on our blog on Monday, July 27. Questions? Post them on the Message Board under the CK Summer Camp Bulletin Board thread.


Involve your family and friends if you like, and enter as many projects as you desire. Have fun, and good luck, Campers!
