Thanks for the ideas! This will get me started. The projects sound fun and relaxing, just what kids need during the summer. I taught at a camp last summer and those kinds of projects worked out best. This summer the girls are groups in grades 1-4, 5-7, and 8-11. So, I've got quite the range. Last year I did some papermaking and marbling (we made journals that we sewed together) with the younger and middle groups and sewing (drawstring backpacks, tie-dyed pillows) with middle and older groups. Tie-dye worked well for all age groups. (I don't know that this camp will be able to afford the procion dye though.)
As far as internet access, I bet the camp might have something, but if it does, it will be slow. There's got to be an internet cafe in East Hampton somewhere, though.

access to the list during the summer-assuming its
