Camp DIY is an arts & crafts makers camp in Evanston for incoming 2nd – 5th graders, plus an Artist Assistant program for 6th-8th graders, focused on creating a unique way to experience the fun of arts and crafts in a relaxed, encouraging environment.
In 2020 Camp DIY is canceled due to COVID-19. We are offering a new program, Creators Club, an at-home camp experience instead.
During our regular in-person camp, kids rotate through 5-10 areas of study a week, learning from local artists, professional crafters and local art teachers. We do things like sewing, weaving, digital arts, macrame, LED circuit crafts, stop-motion animation, clay art, pastels, paper mâché, knitting, book making, jewelry, drawing, painting, multi-media art, wood working, paper crafts, mosaics, ceramics, decoupage and much more!
