Kit 'n Kaboodles

Campers are encouraged to bring kits to sell and then demonstrate how to put them together.  The Kit ‘n Kaboodles event takes place in the evening so you have some time to work on these mini projects.

 

Exchange Gifts

Each camper is invited to bring five exchange gifts.  This means that on each of the five nights of camp, gifts are exchanged among the campers; thus, the need for five gifts.  You bring five wonderful gifts; you go home with five wonderful gifts!   

The exchange gifts do not all need to be the same and they do not need to meet any theme requirements unless you choose to do so.  Exchange gifts should have a minimum retail value of about $15-$20.  Of course homemade gifts are the most sought after and preferred. If you are a collector or not comfortable making your gift, you can bring purchased items and we will be delighted that you can be part of the exchange! The value can be difficult to judge, so think in terms of whether the gift is something that you would like to receive yourself.   You can also ask a friend to help you determine if the value seems appropriate.

Tidbits

Tidbits are smaller gifts that campers may bring to camp.  You need to bring one for each camper, which means 36 tidbits.  They don’t all have to be the same if you don’t care for heavy repetition!  Tidbits are exchanged during the day, usually at a meal time and you’ll find yourself opening packages with several different tidbits each time.  The value for tidbits is in the $5 range.  The value isn’t the key here, so don’t spend too much time worrying about it, just have fun making something that feels like a “tidbit”.

 

Camp Auction

The Camp Mini Ha Ha auction is one of the highlights of camp.  One evening is taken over by the camper auctioneer and her helper and everyone gets into the bidding action.  Donations of miniature items for the auction are made by campers and by other miniaturists who wish to offer support to Camp Mini Ha Ha.  The Camp Registration Form will ask you to indicate if you are donating an item to the auction.  Donating and participating are optional.  Bidding is enthusiastic and the auction items are varied.  It’s a lot of fun and you can come away with some wonderful new acquisitions.

 

Artisan Market and Gallery

The Artisan Market, opens up three times during Camp, providing an opportunity for campers to sell their wares.  Any Camper who wishes to sell their miniatures just needs to indicate their wish on the Registration Form.  In addition, Campers who are able are asked to bring finished projects to put on display in our Camp Mini Ha Ha Gallery.
