Camp DIY


The Experience

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 will be held at Northminster Presbyterian Church, 2515 Central Park Ave. in Evanston and First Presbyterian Church of Wilmette, 600 Ninth St. in Wilmette.

Rotating through 5-10 areas of study a week, campers learn 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 more!
