Crafty Business Camp
We are delighted to announce that Frigg's Mercantile will host our first-ever Crafty Business Camp the week of August 6-10! This camp will give crafty kiddos the opportunity to choose and master a selected handmade product (soap, lotion, candles, etc), design a brand and website, create labels and displays, and ultimately bring their product to the public at the Kid Makers' Market on August 11, 9-10am! Families, friends, and neighbors of campers are encouraged to come shop the handmade market; coffee and hot chocolate will be provided.
Camp sessions will be held Monday-Friday, 10am - 1pm, with a different focus each day.
Kid Makers: Crafty Business Camp Overview
Day 1 - Monday - Learn (or review) how to make lotions, soaps, candles, and lip balms (will extend into Tuesday). Other project opportunities may be available per camper request. Day 2 - Tuesday - Campers select target product from those learned, determine their personal touch, and begin preparation for production day. Day 3 - Wednesday - Mass production! Campers will make a variety of their selected product and establish a product line. Day 4 - Campers determine a product name, create a logo, print business cards, and make a mini-website (please bring laptop if available!). Day 5 - Labels, pricing, and set up! Campers will complete any tasks still needing their attention, set up their displays, and get ready for market!
Participation is $265 for the week and includes the Saturday market vendor fee (haha!). This event will be open to the public and will give campers a real-life experience of selling their products. Kids keep all profits!
The Crafty Business Camp is limited to eight participants and is best for kids aged 9 and up. Register here or reach out with any questions you may have by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 503.974.7414.
