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!

A lovely review from one of this years parents

The camp feels personal, perhaps because we’ve been going for a few years now. There doesn’t feel like there is any pressure on the kids – they do the projects at their pace and level, and there’s plenty of fun. It is slightly more expensive than some other camps but the fact that there’s the welcome, the attention, the chilled out atmosphere, the outdoor play as well as the little pressie at the end means that I am happy to pay that little extra
