Help the Camp Miller Crafts Room

The Arts and Crafts room at YMCA Camp Miller gets a small budget every year but we’re looking to expand that to include a more comprehensive and skill based artistic experience! This year I’m the Arts Specialist and I’m looking for donations so I might be able to teach fiber arts, ceramics, paper making and wood working. Friendship bracelets are great, but if campers could leave camp with a new hobby like knitting or pottery, they’d be able to explore a craft with a greater artistic potential.

YMCA Camp Miller is located in Sturgeon Lake, but is based through the Duluth YMCA. I’m sure there are many of you out there that were campers at some point or have at least heard of the camp. If you can’t donate but have crafty stuff sitting around in your basement, we are always taking physical donations as well.

Please check out or donation page and pass it along to any camp alumni/crafty folk you might know! Also make sure to like us on facebook for camp news and updates!

Making flowers out of tissue paper is fun and inexpensive.  
We've been making flowers using toilet paper at the Wastewater Treatment Plant for activities with youth.

I've done tissue flowers with campers before but the idea behind raising money for the crafts room is so we might be able to teach kids more skill based crafts they can use outside of camp. 

A great activity though! If you have colored tissue paper you can make some really cool stuff.
