Teen Camp at BARN

If you’re a high school student or will be one in the fall, you can experience the amazing array of hands-on craft opportunities at BARN by signing up for some or all of the four weeks of  Teen Camp this summer.

Each week has a different set of activities, where you will be working in one studio for the morning and another studio in the afternoon. There will always be a break for lunch — sometimes to cook a meal together in BARN’s new commercial kitchen. Click the links below to register for each of the weeks or just the ones that work with your schedule.

Activities span multiple days so it’s not possible to register for individual days. But, apart from Teen Camp, BARN has many one-day and several-day classes, and virtually everything BARN offers is open to anyone 14 years and older. To explore these opportunities, check the full BARN calendar or scroll down under “Events & Classes” to focus on craft areas that interest you.
