Location: Madison CC

Who doesn't LOVE slime?! It's easy to make and guaranteed FUN! Some are magnetic, some are inspired by famous wizarding books. Others are glittery or glow in the dark. It doesn't matter how we make it, it's the fun that comes in figuring it out. Our slime camp is designed to see just how many ways and kinds of slime we can create. We'll discuss what an activator is and why no slime is complete without it. We'll learn how different ingredients will change the outcome, texture and use of slime. Slime is awesome, but learning why it works is pretty cool too. Materials are included in the price of the camp.
