If the idea of a sunrise knitting circle on the beach gets your heart racing (and doesn’t make your child groan), the Handwork Studio’s Kids Craft Camp is for your family. The Handwork Studio is a Narberth, Pa., needle arts studio where kids learn self-expression through knitting, crocheting, sewing, quilting, embroidery, and fashion design. And now it’s time to hit the road: to Sunscape Puerto Aventuras Resort in Mexico’s Riviera Maya July 12-19. So in addition to sun, sand, and family fun, the camp includes handwork instruction sessions for children 5-14, a sunset beach fashion show, and craft sessions focusing on Mexican culture and native needle arts. Crafts are geared to both girls and boys (yes, boys). Prices start at $960 per adult and $680 per child. (That includes the camp fee and supplies, airport transportation in Mexico, all meals, drinks, hotel activities, tips and taxes, but not airfare.) Book by Nov. 30 and save $100 per room.
