Fashion Camps for Teens

Summer camp activities are no longer limited to campfires, wilderness training and bonding with Mother Nature. Specialized camps such as fashion camps are becoming more popular. In addition to letting teens exercise their creative skills and tap into their inner fashionista, these camps also educate them on the economics of the industry and bring in professionals to provide behind-the-scenes perspectives.

Blue Tree

Any future fashion maven in grades 7 through 12 can enrol in Bryn Mawr College’s Blue Tree camp in either the Fashion Design I or Fashion Design II summer program. Fashion Design I is a sketching and profiling workshop and focuses on helping potential designers create a portfolio and study the market. The latter camp, called Fashion Remix Workshop, is where students work on individual or group projects, (in the Project Runway style). It also teaches campers about fabrics and stitching techniques. Creative muscles are further flexed with courses such as public art where students study art history and the positive impact of art in urban environments.

SCAD - The University for Creative Careers

Summer seminars at SCAD are held in Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia. Each camp is a week long. One workshop is Fashion: Designing for the Runway, which focuses on fashion basics and how to reflect mood and a person’s character in clothing. Another is Fashion: Sketching/Illustration for Garments where students learn how to sketch fashion silhouettes. Additional courses to round out the education include Metals and Jewelry: Wearable Art and Drawing Studio: The Figure that dissects how to draw specific anatomy.

Modelling Camp

With the motto “teaching girls to approach life with confidence and style”, Modeling Camp in Virginia is geared towards educating its summertime students on multiple aspects of the fashion scene. The institution's Fashion Camp focuses on teaching etiquette and how to take old clothing and alter it to look posh. Behind the Scenes Camp teaches girls about tasteful make-up application and photo techniques, while also bringing in professionals to teach them what jobs such as fashion stylist entail.

For the teen who can’t physically run away to fashion camp, they can attend online classes via Virtual FashionCampNYC in August. The package includes private video lectures and broadcasts from head honchos from the Gap, Tommy Hilfiger and Coach as well as assignments that can be done in the home and then critiqued over the video. The program is open for grades 8 to 12.
