Across five full days of action, kids young and semi-young will undergo a comprehensive camp curriculum chock-full of running, throwing, catching, blocking, teamworking, confidence building, high-fiving, and more.

All campers are led by professional educators from the high-school and collegiate level, and each day's knowledge bowl soars even higher with visits from Eagles greats, ranging from Fred Barnett to the great Pete Retzlaff (Philadelphia Eagles players vary by camp location). By teaming up with experienced players and coaches, kids will be treated to comprehensive instruction that goes beyond purely mechanical skills.
During each of its many weekly classes, The Handwork Studio's staff of teachers and professional artists give creative kids a fun, hands-on introduction to expressing themselves through machine sewing, fashion, knitting, crocheting, embroidery, and needle felting. Workshops such as A Snip-It of Sewing, A Touch of Handwork, A Feel for Fashion, or A Pinch of Knitting Needle Fencing combine a smaller class size with a curriculum that accommodates children of all ages, except Faulknerian man-children with nonlinear senses of time. Petite purlers can also get a head-start on the holidays with a themed Valentine's Day or St. Patrick's Day workshop, which supply all the tools, materials, and instruction necessary to create handmade decorations, meet new friends, and build foolproof Cupid traps. All classes must be used within four months of the Groupon.
