Craft Projects For Camp And Playground | by National Recreation Association



As long as there are camps, playgrounds and recreation programs-and we hope that will be as long as civilization endures - there will be a continuing need for craft projects that do not require elaborate equipment. The average recreation director does not have a well-equipped craft room at his disposal, but this should not-nor does it-mean that he cannot offer a craft program. It is hoped that all the projects described here will be found both practical and enjoyable, and that this booklet will be a real addition to the camp or playground director's library.
