Stay-Cation Summer Camp  |  Retro Road Trip

Monday, June 27  |  9:30am - 12pm  |  Adults of all ages  |  $25 Drop-In 

Why should kids have all the fun? Take a trip back to summer camp with our Stay-Cation Summer Camp for adults! Join us in our 1970's Airstream trailer, and get ready for a Retro Road Trip.  We will be making our own Travel Journals for holding the sketches, watercolors and scrapbooked memorabilia you collect on your summer travels.  Make a project using Maps, and learn how (and start) a fun cloth banner to display tourist patches.  Refreshments will include lemonade (all grown up with strawberry and basil), artisanal root beer floats, and home made cookie ice cream sandwiches (with recipes to take home!).  If you need a break from creativity, play Kubb, the Swedish "chess" lawn game.
