Team TAC offers a fun textile experience for campers that is flexible for families and supportive of all home situations.  Choose your own adventure; create at home, share, and tune in to camp’s ‘live’ events when you’d like to - participate online or offline all summer long on your schedule.

 

We are excited to curate a tactile off-screen experience for our community of young fiber artists.  We imagine a summer of busy hands, and brilliant ideas, catching some fresh air on the stoop while knitting, or weaving on a hand quilted blanket in the park.  All Summer long we will do our best to bring you TAC SUMMER CAMP VIBES!

THANK YOU for choosing to transition into TAC Summer Camp at Home. The safety of our community is our priority.  We will miss you IRL, but we plan to deliver the best Summer Camp experience TAC can offer! 

 

Those who have been financially affected may surely ask for a full or partial refund, but this needn’t exclude you from participation.  Instead, consider our scholarship program as an option available to you. 

 

If participating does not work out for you, we understand.  Consider donating your tuition to our scholarship fund and help support a child’s passion for textiles this summer.  

 

We are a small team with big summer plans; we will pause on processing refunds from now until JUNE 20th to focus our small team’s efforts.  To request a refund please fill out THIS FORM.
