These Things Happened: We got our craft on at Camp Gitchacrafton

Camp Gitchacrafton entertained over 200 campers on Wednesday, June 19 and is poised to become our newest annual event.

We partied like it was 1973 and everyone needed a new lanyard. Yep, at our craft party celebrating Etsy's international night of crafting, Fresh City Life hosted four crafting workshops -- lanyards, friendship bracelets, decorated postcards and ceramics.

It was an ebullient night co-hosted by Denver Handmade Alliance and their creative and enthusiastic crew. Campers from all over (we even had some out of town campers) enjoyed lots of crafting, great food and beverages from Whole Foods Market, clever films about summer camp and even an author talk with Bruce Kraig, who just published the quintessential history on hot dogs entitled, Man Bites Dog.

Arts and Venues Denver generously allowed us to set up camp at the McNichols Building in Civic Center Park. It was a pretty perfect evening! Hope to see you all at camp next year.
