Handicraft

Handicraft allows Scouts of all ages to develop their creativity through a variety of hands on activities and projects. 

Hemp & Gimp - Make a necklace, key chain, or braid. Regardless of what you make, you will have a lot of fun working on hundreds of different ways to weave and braid.

Tie-Dying - It’s great fun to dye all your favorite clothes in a multitude of colors – pink, purple, orange, red, blue, green, and yellow. Come down and dye some clothes in time for them to dry before the end of your week at camp.

Patrol Flag and Sign Making - Patrols can go to Handicraft to work on making a Patrol Flag or Sign. Use these flags to promote the patrol method within the troop. Show them off at flag ceremonies during the week at camp, or have your sign hung in the dining hall with many other historical signs.
