Duluth Folk School Summer Craft Camp

Handmade Escapades!

Duluth Folk School is hosting a two-week summer camp program for kids entering 8-10th grade, August 9-13 and 16-20!

Join us for this two week camp where you will have fun building your own canoe paddle, fusing glass, sewing, making jewelry from silverware, making your own soap, and much more! Our small group will work with professionals artisans to make quality products that will last a lifetime (well, hopefully not the soap)!

We will meet at the Duluth Folk School every day until the last day, when we will meet at the St. Louis River to test out our new canoe paddles!

Two weeks gives us time to dive into lots of different projects. This is more than your average arts and crafts camp! This small group will get in-depth instruction, support, and time to practice skills throughout our time together.

Our youth programs follow our COVID Policies & Procedures.

If you have questions about age or ability please contact Camp Coordinator Erika LeMay at
