COVID-19 Update: All in-person summer camps starting June 22 are still scheduled to run with updated safety protocols, provided the state and local officials declare it safe for us to do so. In the event of any changes or updates, we will post on our website and reach out via e-mail to any families with upcoming camp registrations. Please refer to our policy page for more details on our new protocol and cancellation policy. You can view our full safety plan in the PDF here:
Get ready for a summer of stitchin'! Butcher's Sew Shop Junior offers themed summer camps for children ages 5 to 15 at two studio locations in the Philadelphia area. Please find the full schedule for Summer 2020 below.
All camps run 9am - 3pm Monday through Friday. Extended care is NO LONGER available for our June and July camps due to changes in COVID-19 protocol. Aftercare for August camps are still available for the time being for an additional fee: morning drop off as early as 8am is $10/day; afternoon pickup until 5pm is $20/day. You may add these options to your cart during registration or contact us later when your schedule is finalized.
No sewing experience is needed to attend camp. All ages will learn to use a sewing machine, cut fabric, pin and mark, and construct projects from start to finish. We provide all materials. Your child will need to bring a snack, packed lunch and 32 oz of water. Lunch is spent supervised at a nearby park, weather and official city guidelines permitting.
To facilitate as much physical distancing as reasonably possible, each camp will be broken up into two smaller groups of students, which will determine pickup/drop-off times, working groups and lunchtime dismissal. We will randomly assign these groups unless there are sibling sets or friend groups who request to be together. Please email Andrea at with special group requests.
If the camp you want is sold out, please add your child's information to the waitlist so you can be notified if a spot opens.
