Hand-knitting is unique in that it doesn’t require knitting needles–instead, you use your arms! Kids will learn how to hand-knit a lap blanket for this three day class. There will be time for learning and practicing the techniques before starting and completing the project. You will get to take home your lap blanket after the last day. Due to the level of complication of this project, the class is limited to 10-12 year olds. This is a three-part class taking place over three consecutive days.

What You Get with Your Check:

  • 7.5 hours of instruction (over three day span)
  • All materials and yarn to create your lap blanket
  • Take home your finished product

The class payment must be submitted no later than a week before the scheduled class. If not submitted, we have the right to contact the next participant on the waitlist, when applicable. Cash or checks can be mailed or brought in to Thornapple Community Church. Checks can be made out to Thornapple Community Church; memo line “Camp Thornapple.” We do not have online payments set up at this time. If a class is canceled, or a student can no longer attend for any reason, money will be returned in full.

Participants who sign up for any one class before June 1st will receive a free Camp Thornapple t-shirt with registration. A small handful of extra shirts will be ordered for those who sign up on or after June 1st to purchase for $5. Shirts can be picked up at their first class. Extra shirts will remain available until all are purchased.

If your plans change and you can no longer attend, please contact Director of Children’s Ministry, Rachel Exoo, as soon as possible. We will gladly contact someone on our waitlist in your absense!

Upon completion of registration, you will receive a confirmation email as well as reminder emails leading up to the event. If you do not receive a confirmation, please double check if you submitted your form properly.
