CAMP SHINESanta's WorkshopCreating gifts made with care

Each Santa’s Workshop gift is a surprise. Children often want to make a gift for YOU, the parent, and we think the children would enjoy making you a gift that’s a surprise for you! We’ve structured these upcoming workshop days so that you don’t know what’s being created or what’s inside the package wrapped with care! In addition to caregivers, many kids also make presents for aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and grandparents.


Handmade gifts we have made in the past included:

  • Real Crystal Bracelets
  • Custom Blended Essential Oil Perfume Set
  • Soaps, Lotions and Bath Salt Bundles
  • Ceramic Holiday Ornament
  • Custom Bird Houses
  • Custom Herbal Tea Blends

and more…

Santa's Workshops

Every child loves to give gifts! My mom (the original Santa Claus…the woman who brings holiday spirit all year with her generosity) once told me, “When I was a little girl, I would find old toys in my closet and wrap them to give to my brothers on Christmas Day because I received so much joy in watching them open their gifts!

The giving spirit is very special! This is the essence of the holiday season not endless buying or consuming on amazon (although we all do this…myself included from time-to-time😊) BUT perhaps it’s time to really give a gift from the heart and teach our children the joy of slowing down to make something special for someone special this year!

Camp SHINE Santa’s Workshop is a wonderful opportunity for your child to make a very special homemade quality gift, something they can be truly proud of to give to a loved one. Their present will leave camp wrapped with care and your child will experience the joy of being one of Santa’s Elves.

Not to mention we will also visit the farm!

Here’s a glance at Camp SHINE Santas Workshop:
  • Before you come to camp ask your child to think of a special someone, they would like to make a gift for this holiday season.
  • We will then have a wonderful artist, herbalist, functional doctor, or potter come and lead the workshop, not only teaching your child about health, wellness and art but also creating something meaningful and beautiful!
  • Your child will leave with a lovely homemade gift from them wrapped and ready for delivery this holiday season.
  • We will also visit the farm, talk about the beauty of the holiday spirit and drink hot coco!
  • We may even have a special guest appearance at the farm….

These days promise to be special experiences your child(ren) will remember!

All workshops are ages 6 (alumni) -12
Santa’s Workshops are truly enjoyed by all ages!



What to bring to Camp SHINE Santas Workshop:

  • Backpack with lunch + Water bottle (label belongings)
  • Change of clothes
  • Dress warmly in layers (rain boots are a must if the ground is wet)


What does my child need to bring to Camp?

Backpack filled with bagged lunch and water bottle. Change of clothes in case get wet or muddy. We suggest dressing in layers and warmly, including a beanie.  If it’s wet at all rain gear and boots are helpful. There is no such thing as bad weather just poorly prepared people. If your child is dressed warmly, the day will be full of fun! Please be sure to label belongings for safe return.

Can I sign up for multiple workshops, so my child can make multiple gifts? Do you offer a discount for signing up for more than one workshop?

Yes! You receive 5% off your total, when you purchase more than one workshop!

What do you do if the weather is bad?

Camp SHINE is 100% outdoors.

However, we do have an indoor location on the farm, a beautiful spacious dining room that we will go into in case it is too wet or cold as a backup option. We ask that the children bundle up, wear a hat and dress in layers so they are warm, dressing appropriately helps us enjoy the cold and is not a hinderance on the fun! Our priority is to always be outside!

What is your cancellation policy?

You may cancel anytime 2 weeks prior to the start of your workshop. We do not refund after that point.

Will the children get to visit the farm?

YES! We will be visiting the farm, collecting eggs, grooming the ponies, and tending to the animals just as we do at all Camp SHINE programs!

What are the Max number of kids in a workshop?

We have a 10-person minimum and 20- person maximum.
