The event featured different workshops where children got to pick the one they were most interested in learning. The artisans served as instructors and taught several different crafting skills and techniques.
The workshops included beginner sewing, wood burning and fiber weaving. The blacksmith’s shop was open for the children to see the blacksmiths in action, and the train museum was also open.
The classes are designed for both boys and girls 6-16 years old who are interested in crafts. The children were able to take home the craft they made during Kidz Kamp.
