According to the National Camp Association, more than 14 million campers attend overnight and day camps in the United States annually. This year, families are figuring out how to adapt time spent during the summer months. Amazon Handmade has introduced Camp Handmade to bring elements of the camp experience into homes across the country.

Families who are looking for a creative outlet are encouraged to learn from the best through the Makers Camp which is in session now through Aug. 15.

Camp Handmade
