Camp Thundercraft

Updated: Apr 18, 2019

I can barely contain my excitement with Camp ThunderCraft just days away.

Camp ThunderCraft is an annual small business retreat for creative businesses hosted by Urban Uprising. If you've never heard of Urban Uprising they are a Seattle based company that organizes and host 20+ creative events throughout the year. I highly recommend checking them out.

"Our aim is to help connect our vendors with the fans who love quality, handmade products the most. We do this through the dozens of shows that we put on throughout the year, while at the same time organizing other networking and business-building events that provide resources for our vendors to grow their businesses to new heights."- Urban Uprising

Camp ThunderCraft 2019 will be my first ever retreat (personal or business) and I am beyond excited (and nervous) to be a part of it. Like most creatives I'm an introvert so attending this weekend long retreat is way outside of my normal comfort zone, but I signed up and plan to enjoy it as much as I can. Sometimes outside our comfort zone is exactly where we need to be.

Our weekend will take place at Camp Sealth on Vashon Island, WA. Here's a sneak peak of what mine entails.

Check-in and nametag making

Icebreakers and happy hour

Keynote by Robert Mahar (yes, the one from Making It season one!!!)

Potluck dinner

Bonfire, open crafting and hangout time

Workshops: Money Matters, SEO, DIY Business Taxes, Craft Show Vending 101 and Introduction to Hand Lettering

It's going to be an amazing weekend and I'm ready to make new creative connections, immerse myself in the local creative community, re-spark my creativity/imagination and get my creative business up and running at full speed again.

See you next week with all my retreat photos!

'til next time,
