Penny's Hobbiton


9:00 AM TO 4:30 PM

Each year one winner from our fundraiser is given the chance to design their own summer camp. This year we are lucky enough to have the creative talents of Penny -- hot off the heels of her unique Spring Break design, we can assure you that campers are in for a treat with this one. Immersing ourselves fully in the world of Hobbiton, we’ll spend the week crafting unique memorabilia to sit atop our bedroom shelves like literary trophies. We will start with Hobbit feet slipper-socks, complete with nails and fur. The group will then move on to making miniature Hobbit gardens complete with mini herbs and tiny flowers in rings of gold, perfect to adorn any mantel, balcony or bedside table. To round out our week of crafting abundance, campers will hand paint tiny teapots, cups and saucers fit for the fanciest of second breakfasts (don’t worry, we’ll make sure to send you home with baking instructions so that your sets will last a lifetime). Each day we will take second breakfast at 11:00am, while travelling with Bilbo Baggins. 

We imagine that Tolkien never placed limits on the things he dreamt up...we invite you to do the same.
