June 28- July 2 Upcycle Mania Camp(ages 11-15) @ DPNC Give yourself the time and space to turn things you already have into something new, exciting and useful. How about making a tote bag out of a tired t-shirt, braid a rug out of t-shirt yarn or craft a pullover or sweater for your dog? Maybe you would also enjoy creating some cat and dog toys for a local veterinarian’s office to help them during anxious visits? Bring unwanted, unused or tired items from home and we will combine them with a collection at camp to create our own mini flea market and fuel your upcycling imagination. Staff will work with you to “flip” your ideas and help fulfill your makeover vision. *Only non-cloth items will be shared. Campers provide their own fabrics, bring some ideas and we will facilitate the projects! Sign up link here: Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center (blackbaudhosting.com)
