    Camp for Children in Grades K-5! 

    Roxbury and non-Roxbury Residents Welcome! 

    Do your kids love arts and crafts, cooking, and yoga? If so, why not fill their summer with fun at our Kidz Kraftz camp?! Your child will explore all mediums of crafts including silk dyeing, paper making, ceramics, weaving, soap making, and candle making. In cooking class, we will learn how to make bread, fresh butter, cookies, and so much more! Yoga classes will be filled with games, learning how to meditate, and basic asana. Each week will have different crafts and cooking sessions. 

    Please note camps are based on the age/grade the child will be in come September 2020. 

    Camp MUST have a minimum of 6 students each week in order to run.

    Children will have aprons during the painting sessions. However, spills and accidents do happen, so please be sure to dress your child in "play clothes" in case the paint gets on their clothes.
