Fashion + Sewing Summer Camp for Tweens 9-12yrs - 2019 - Bryant Park

Our tween summer camp combines the best parts of fashion and design for ages 9-12 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 take a field trip or have a special guest activity (for example: we visit Mood Fabrics, the FIT museum, learn interactive fashion history, visit designer showrooms and have a real fashion model teach us how to walk the runway!).

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).

    The best part is . . . camp ends with a fashion show for parents and friends! Our fashionistas will show off their sewn garments, fabulous accessories, brands and illustration portfolios on Friday at pick-up (5pm). 

    Designed as a 2-week experience, campers can register for 1+ weeks (after two weeks some lessons may repeat). All supplies, field trip costs and transportation (except lunch and snack) are included.
