camp and create
Have you wanted to spend more time outdoors in the woods but aren't quite sure where to start? Do you enjoy learning new things? Are you creative or would you like to be? If you answered yes to any of these questions Knitting In The Wild's Camp & Create is the place for you.
Set in Minnesota State Parks, Camp & Create weekends are small groups of people getting together to enjoy good company, great food and make pretty things. With a campy vibes but no tents, Camp & Create has been designed to provide the space in order for you to get outdoors, enjoy nature, feed your creativity, and maybe ignite a new passion.
Currently Camp & Create weekends are usually opened about 120 days before camp. These are not at giant retreat centers - they are in beautiful State Parks - and as such they are more of a pop up retreat. So check back often and fill out the form below to get on our email list so you can be the first to hear about new weekends.
CAMP & CREATE WEEKEND - AUTUMN WEAVING
October 1-3, 2021
Knitting In The Wild Camp & Create weekends have been designed to provide the space and campy vibe for you to get outdoors, enjoy nature, and tap into the creative side of yourself. We stay in Camper Cabins at a Minnesota State Park: Wild River State Park! The mission is to bring like-minded people together in an outdoor environment to become friends, share, learn and inspire!
The weekend is geared towards creativity! You will spend time living and playing outside, eating good food, and spending time with old and new friends. We offer that first step to enjoying the wonderful world of camping - but you still get to sleep up off the ground. Plus, you don't have to buy a bunch of gear before you ever set foot in the woods.
Weaving In Nature Workshop - A morning and afternoon session with tips and tricks for creating a beautiful woven tapestry using yarn, roving and items found in nature. If you have a tapestry loom bring it! There will be looms available for rent/purchase or a link to a few of our favorites will be provided. This is a beginner course however all levels are welcome. This is as much about being together in the outdoors as it is about the weaving!
Space is very limited. Once registered you will be sent an itinerary and a list of what items you should bring to camp.
We are offering an early-bird registration fee until June 18, 2021. After that date, the fee will increase to $375.
