We are planning on re-opening for camp this August. Please see below for information on our response to COVID-19 and the steps we will take to ensure a safe re-opening!
Our summer camp combines the best parts of fashion and design for ages 6-12 years old. Limited to only 12 campers, our one-of-a-kind "boutique" camp teaches students how to sew, design and style their own garments in one (or more) weeks this summer.
Each day breaks down into five classes with experienced instructors (and our CPR & First Aid certified TFC staffers) who work in the fashion industry. Small class sizes allow each camper to get the attention and tools they need to design and create.
We’ll start the morning off with fashion illustration and then have a special activity (for example learn interactive fashion history, or do science experiments with textiles).
After lunch we learn how to create our own fashion brands by designing logos and products or create an accessory. Finally it's time to sew in our large fully equipped sewing studio where we make real, wearable garments (campers will sew three items in one week).
Designed as a 2-week experience, campers can register for 1+ weeks (after two weeks some lessons may repeat). All supplies (except lunch and snack) are included.
OUR REOPENING GUIDELINES:
We will be following New York State guidelines for Child Care and Day Camps along with the CDC and local officials guidelines and recommendations with respect to social distancing and capacity limits.
Sewing machine desks will be spaced 6 feet apart.
Each age group will have their own dedicated classroom area, we will not switch classrooms.
Classroom areas, supplies, and sewing machines will be sanitized and disinfected before camp each day.
Campers will have dedicated supplies and sewing machine, this means their own scissors, pins, sewing and drawing supplies that will NOT be used by other campers. Supplies will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized between camp weeks.
All staff and campers throughout the day and adults at check-in are required to wear face masks.
We will operate at 25% capacity, campers will be in a group of 6 with a maximum of 12 campers and three staff members in our studio.
We will not take the campers on 2 field trips during the week, rather will have special fashion lessons inside our studio.
