Sallins Easter Camp

Three days of creative fun, painting, learning to use materials like oil pastels, watercolours and lots more.

This Easter Camp is suitable for children ages 5 to 11 and runs from 10am to 2pm daily.

Each year we come up with NEW, FUN and CREATIVE projects to do each day. We play with paint, create with cardboard and explore making art with nature. We have free crafting time to just be creative with no ‘you must do this’ or ‘follow these instructions’. These free craft times are so important for children to develop their creativity and learn to problem solve and use their imagination.


The Craft Corner Easter camps are all about the making. The doing. The creating! Each day your child will go home with a project they have made themselves from start to finish. We make sure that all direction and teaching is positive and and the process is enjoyed as mush as the end result.

We do a lot of 3D work in our art camps, we believe that this teaches your children key and integral problem solving skills. Learning to understand how structures are made, how corners are held together and how you can make a hinging roof or a closing door. All these skills tie into your child’s spacial development. It helps them learn skills they will use later in life.


They love to make and do

They always want to draw you a picture (or ten)

They are a bit shy so a big camp would not be for them

They love making and are always coming up with ideas for new projects

They love drawing but you want them to learn new skills

They have a lot of creative energy and learning some direction in how to channel those talents would be great

Its the Easter holidays and you were searching for a craft Camp!

The Craft Corner camps are the perfect summer camp for any child, as we believe that all children are creative and we help them to nurture that creativity and grow their confidence in their own abilities.

Art can have a fantastically calming effect and helps you to work through problems. Craft teaches you to problem solve and find innovative solutions with the materials you have to hand.

At our Summer Camps we make sure to give time each day for our campers to do free crafting. Working on their own projects and challenging them to use the materials at hand to turn their ideas into reality!
