SCRAP Denton, a local nonprofit that promotes creative re-use of fabric, knick-kancks and both home and office materials, will teach local children paper crafts during a summer of workshops and during Camp SCRAP this summer.

SCRAP has season filled with creative workshops for kids

SCRAP Denton’s summer programs offer everything a bright child could use to make the school-free days more adventurous: lots of odds and ends, time and imagination.

Children ages 6 to 12 can attend Wednesday workshops, titled “School’s Out, SCRAP’s In,” just about every week though Aug. 21. Workshops won’t be held on July 3 or July 24.

An instructor will guide children through creative reuse workshops from 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesdays.

Using materials donated to the local nonprofit, workshop participants will spend three hours on a creative project that not only engages their imaginations, but also teaches them about recycling and reusing materials creatively. Participants will learn about printmaking, paper crafts, weaving, crafting monsters and robots, drawing and painting.

Children can attend one or all of the workshops. The sessions cost $15 per child, or $120 for the remaining eight sessions. The cost covers all materials.

“Camp SCRAP” will be from 9 a.m. to noon July 22-26 for ages 6 to 9, and from 1 to 4 p.m. June 22-26 for ages 9 to 12. Cost is $75 per child; some financial assistance is available.

Register by visiting  or by sigining up at the SCRAP store, 215 W. Oak St. Children must be registered before camp starts. For more information, e-mail .
