Description

Announcing a Sioux Falls FIRST! Basic Life Skills Day camp available to our children ages 12-16. We offer retired and professionals to teach your child(ren) skills that they can continue to hone till they need to move out to their own dorm room or apartment. We want them to know these skills to empower them to save money and take care of themselves in the world. Many kids in the high school system choose to take the college bound path. This leaves them out of Home Ec. and shop classes. We all could use these classes to keep more money in our pockets or to have knowledge to hire the right person for the job. This may incite some young Entrepreneurs.

How the camp works. Everything is provided.

This is a 4 day camp M-Th. Friday is a FREE BONUS day. If families need to get away on Fridays - then they can do so. (I raised 5 kids I know this influenced my camp choices). Or the child can attend and work freely on their interests.

Days are 4 hours. Morning session is 8am to noon. Afternoon session is 1pm to 5pm. This allows the child to work a job if they want. You will choose only all mornings or all afternoons.

*Both sessions will have one day dedicated to basic cooking skills, smart healthy grocery shopping, coupons and rebates and making our envelopes. Knife skills and individual cooking. All hands on skills.

*Both sessions will have a day for home repair and maintenance. Light plumbing issues, hanging pictures, fixing walls from damage, how to handle electricity, ect. How leases work and damage deposits. How to call maintenance folks and hiring handy men if needed. Hands on skills - not just a demonstration.

*Both sessions will have 1 day for sewing, mending, ironing and clothing shopping to fit one's body. How to get deals. What is dress code for occasions and how to RSVP. Macramé and/or crochet. They will be using machines to create an item to take home.

*Both sessions will have 1 day for up cycling art. How to use glue gun, paint, spray paint etc.

Fridays will then be the day for finishing or continuing an interest in the crafts.

We make no arrangements for drop off or pick-up. Parents will need to sign a consent waiver and an emergency medical form.

We are a non-profit Makerspace cultivating knowledge, skills and community for the Sioux Falls area. See us on Facebook for our other adult classes offered. We also do corporate Team Building events, Bridal DIY & crafting retreats.
