A Unique Experience for Your Child

When making candles, the first step in the process is learning about the different types of waxes and scents that you can use in candle making. During our Potions and Lotions camp, students will learn the necessary process of candle making to create beautiful candles made with several different ingredients that you may find around, such as crayons, old candles, and other materials. 

They will learn melt and pour techniques that will use a variety of waxes, like beeswax, paraffin, soy wax, and others, as well as basic stirring and knowing when to add essential oils, so they do not get ruined in the process. They will make votives, dipped candlesticks, wax melts and other varieties. We also teach them how to incorporate safety when our campers create their masterpieces.   Candle making can teach campers confidence while boosting their creativity and self-esteem. They can also learn skills that are not only valuable, but they can learn to make gifts for the people they care about.

Practicing relaxation and mindfulness has a lot of benefits, not only to your child’s mental health but to their physical health. Some of the things where it can benefit children are:
