Camp Art Director Project Ideas

Last update Jul 28

I have worked for 13 years as a children's summer camp art director.  I dislike buying packaged arts and craft projects and look outside the box for ideas for our many art area activities. 

Because of this role, I found instructables.  I continue to use instructables to this day to not only find fun projects for camp, but to enjoy personally and to share projects I have done.  I decided to put a guide together for some great projects that would work well in a summer camp setting.
