Girls Camp Crafts

If you're in charge of crafts for girl's camp this year, you'll find a lot of fun ideas and easy projects to make with minimal craft supplies. 

I had my daughter (who is 13) help me curate this list. She included camping crafts that she or her friends would like to do. 

Lets get started!

wax cord bracelets
Pura Vida Inspired Bracelets by Adventures of a DIY Mom

This first craft is one we made last year at girls camp. The girls loved making them and came up with some awesome color combinations.

narwhal plush
DIY Narwhal Plush by The Inspiration Edit

This fun craft is just adorable and anyone will love making these.

Bookmark corner
DIY Embroidered Corner Bookmark by Cobberson & Company

Teach the girls a few basic embroidery stitches and they can make these cute bookmarks. 
Nature Mandala by Made in a Pinch

This craft is perfect for girls camp because it matches the outdoor theme.  You can even use flower petals from the campsite.

painted flower pots

The best camp crafts involve creativity. Supply pots and paint and your teenage girls will come up with all kinds of designs.

These cards are a great craft and you can have the girls write in them for one another or someone else they know.  
key chain

This craft is fantastic because these little birds are so adorable. The girls will want to make a whole nest full of birds.

Easy Paper Lotus by Little Ladoo
Paper crafts are always fun and this one is easy enough for anyone to make. The only supplies you need for these are paper, glue, scissors and the free template. 

DIY Rag Garland by A Rose Tinted World

This garland is so easy to make using scraps of fabric. It could be a fun way to decorate your campsite or tent.  

It could also be a great way to encourage kindness - each time the girls notice an act of service or kind words, they could add to the garland. Try and see how long you can make the strand over the course of the week.

DIY Leather Keychain by Making Manzanita

All the girls will love this because they can decorate their bags or backpack with this. 

Crochet Heart Bracelet By Blue Star Crochet
This is one of the most creative, and cutest craft on this list. Who wouldn't want to make this?
Plus the girls will learn a new skill.

DIY Wish Bracelets by Happily DIY

These bracelets are so cool with the beads woven into them. They look like they would be hard. But if you know how to braid, you can make these bracelets.

marbled mugs
DIY Marbled Nail Polish Mugs by Strength and Sunshine
This is another very unique idea. It's great to do outside because it can be a little messy.

This is the perfect summer craft to bring nature into girls camp. It's super fun, and you get to bird watch.
