Where is it located? Is it in person?
JJB Summer Camp is an online event. The classes will be held via a private Facebook group. Each class is a Facebook Live that you can then replay any time you'd like.
What's a bunk buddy? Do I have to have one?
Remember those days of Summer Camp when you got paired with a new friend to share a cabin or tent with? That's the spirit of bunk buddies!
A bunk buddy is a beading buddy that you will be randomly paired with when you sign up! Similar to our Love Club Mailing program, you and your buddy get to chat during camp and at the end you will have a chance to exchange a piece of jewelry.
Bunk mates are not required, we do offer private cabins for those who prefer to camp alone!
Do I need to send a piece I made at camp to my bunk buddy? Do I have to use beads in the kit?
If you'd like to make something for your bunk buddy using beads from your stash or you'd like to make something else for them, that's ok! Whatever you think your buddy will like.
What if I can't make a live class?
Classes are permanently available to campers via replay. To access all replays on the Facebook page, go to the "Media" tab and select "Videos" OR you can access all videos by going into the "Topics" tab and selecting "#videos" from the list. Either way will bring up all the replays from all the classes.
How do I participate?
