Calling all parents of young crafters and creative minds. If you wanted to keep the kids occupied for Michaels’ kids camp, known as Camp Creatology, it was back just in time for summer break. Camp Creatology continued through July 14, 2023, when kids chose from four themed kits in instructor-led classes, but camp is now over. However, you can still sign up for Michaels’ free craft classes “Sunday Makebreaks” that happen every weekend!

Camp Creatology is Michaels’ kids’ free summer crafting camp, and you could pick from a live in-store program, recorded class, or self-guided way to learn. Project kits were available to purchase for $11.99 (using code CREATOLOGY), but they weren’t required to join in the activities online and in stores (according to the camp info). Another idea for an affordable season is taking advantage of cheap summer movies and free things to do with your kids this summer.

Camp Creatology has four ways to learn.

In 2023, Camp Creatology had four themed kits, each containing all the materials necessary to create three unique crafts. Registration was available for online or in-store crafts on the Michaels Camp Creatology website.

Each craft was about 30 – 60 minutes. You could also buy the activity kits and save 20% with the code CREATOLOGY. Each kit had enough materials for three kids to participate. The regular price of each kit was $14.99, but with the 20% off code, the cost was $11.99.
