Description: Bring the magic with this adventure-filled, Harry Potter inspired camp! Through games, storytelling, and hands-on fiber arts activities, kids will experience the exciting world of witchcraft and wizardry.

Whether you’ve read the Harry Potter books or not, these projects will be fun and magical for all! Ages 8+ (exceptions for mature 7 year-olds).
Impact: Felt, fabric and notions are all utilized from Ragfinery’s supply of reusable materials, decreasing demand for new consumer goods.
