Do you miss summer camp? I do! So here’s the perfect excuse for some creative ‘me’ time this summer – Vintage Summer Camp!
Following on the success of our 2010 Grow-A-Long, this year’s Vintage Summer Camp will have a diverse range of projects and no special mailing list to subscribe to – it will all be here on the blog. And the best part, you don’t even need a garden!
How does it work?
The goal of summer camp is to have fun. But the competitive goal of summer camp is to collect all 5 of the badges. People who collect all 5 badges will get special mention on the blog in September!
During July & August I’ll post projects which fall into different ‘badge’ categories. Complete a project from each category and then share a photo of it (either leave a comment with a link to your photo or blog post about the project, or upload a photo to our flickr group) to earn that badge. Get all 5 badges to be a successful summer camp graduate!
Sharing our projects is what makes it like summer camp. As you probably learned when you were 9 years old, you might go to summer camp alone, but you always leave with a bunch of new friends! So maybe you won’t make best friends at our virutal summer camp – but you will get tons of ideas, inspiration and support for taking some ME time this summer.
This is where you’ll be able to see the projects completed so far:
What are the badges?
Here are the 5 summer camp badges you need to collect. When you’ve completed a project let me know and I’ll send you the code to include the badge on your site!
