Camps at The Little Bits Workshop are a collage of creativity, ingenuity, learning, upcycled projects, outdoor explorations and fun with friends. The underlying theme of each camp is to learn the necessary skills to create useful beauty and to be good stewards of the natural beauty all around us. 

   We are a bunch of nurturing, creative moms & “mums” who love teaching kids to use their hands, not just their thumbs!! Our goal is to develop independent and confident MAKERS who have skills for life so they don't bring their pants home from college to be hemmed!!! We believe they should be able to DO IT THEMSELVES!



Our next camp is
