Calling All Crafters: Share Your Talents & Send a Child to Camp

Are you someone who loves to knit, crochet, woodwork, quilt, make note cards, Christmas ornaments, or other creations? Or perhaps you are part of a group that does craft items. Then this opportunity is for you!


We have been working to come up with fun new ways to get Mechuwana friends involved in ensuring that any child who wants to come to camp is given that life-changing opportunity, and we think we have one that many of you can participate in. We are inviting you or perhaps a group in your church to spend the next several months creating items for Mechuwana to sell at a few holiday season craft fairs.


We will use these opportunities to raise money for our scholarship program but also raise awareness about Mechuwana’s many programs, and ways that people can get involved in those programs. With your crafts and our staff at these fairs, we will be able to get the word out to a whole new audience, bringing more people into our Mechuwana family. As we sell your crafts we will also talk about Mechuwana and what it has to offer.


Here is how it works:-if you would like to drop off your crafts, we will collect them at camp any time between now and Saturday, October 19. (We will store them at our main office.) We will need all completed crafts by then to ensure that we have enough products for us to have tables at these craft fairs. If you are unable to bring them to camp, we would be happy to arrange with you for us to pick them up.

Or email us: we have set up a special email address (messagetomechuwana@gmail.com) for this project. Please email us to let us know what kinds of crafts you would be willing to donate to us. Thank you for all of your time and talents that you so generously share with Mechuwana and our ministry. We hope to hear from you as you help us get ready for craft fair season later this year! *We have set up this special email address so that your emails don't get lost among all of the summer camp registration emails that we get this time of year. If you have questions or need to contact the camp office about something unrelated to this request for crafts, please continue to email the office at mechuwana@fairpoint.net or call the office at (207) 377-2924.
