COVID-19 Update: The City of Philadelphia and other bodies will issue 2021 COVID protocols for summer camps based on the state of the pandemic and vaccination. When these new guidelines are issued, we will amend our 2020 Safety Plan. You can view last summer's safety plan below but keep in mind this may change based on new guidance.
Get ready for a summer of stitchin'! Butcher's Sew Shop Junior offers themed summer camps for children ages 6 to 15 in the Philadelphia area. Please find the full schedule for Summer 2021 below.
All camps run 9am - 3pm Monday through Friday (except for July 6-9, Tues-Fri).
ALL CAMPS ARE HELD AT 800 S. 8th Street (Our Graduate Hospital studio has closed). While multiple age groups may coincide at the same location, age groups will be divided with assigned instructors and projects suited to that age group.
Extended Care is available from 8-9am and 3-5pm except for the 11-15 year age group camp.
Extended Care Fees: 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, with the exception of the 11-15 year old group which will need to bring $20 their first day. 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.
If physical distancing requirements are recommended, each camp may be broken up into two smaller groups of students, which will determine pickup/drop-off times, working groups and lunchtime dismissal.
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.
10% sibling discount (first child is full price)
10% multi-session discount (first week is full price)
Learn how to sew garments and accessories from patterns with professional finishing touches to create one-of-a-kind looks. Unconventional materials and team challenges encourage campers to add new skills to their design toolbox. Students will need to bring $20 cash to go fabric shopping on first day.
