Michael’s Summer Camp – Camp Creativity
June 12 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, repeating until July 26, 2019
This summer Michael’s Summer Camp, Camp Creativity is offering a 7 week program where kids can create crafts focusing a new theme each week.
Michael’s Summer Camp, Camp Creativity
Michael’s Camp Creativity Classes meet Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 am – 12 pm. The cost is $3 per 30 minute session for ages 3 and up. There are new crafts each day, new themes each week and exciting demos! Kids collect stickers and coloring pages for every week they attend. There will be slime every Friday!
Here are 3 reasons to take advantage of Michael’s Camp Creativity
1. Beat the Heat! These crafts are a great way to keep your kids busy while staying cool. Instead of parents scrambling to develop crafts and projects at home during these super hot days, leave that job to the talented Michaels’ staff.
2. Family Bonding! This a great opportunity to work together with your child to create something you are both proud of (and can be hung on the refrigerator)! Art is a wonderful way to learn more about your child including their likes and dislikes.
3. Educational without the kids knowing! Often times it is hard to get kids to focus on academics over the summer but with this program they have fun while learning. Art boosts creativity, hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills and spatial awareness. All skills needed for success in school!
