Summer plans are looking different for everyone this year, but no bigger bummer is there than the cancelling of kids' summer camps. Luckily, there's still a chance to get that camp experience without having to leave your home — and guess what? It's not just for the kids. Thanks to Amazon's Camp Handmade, everyone can tap into their inner maker and craft their way through the summer.

Camp Handmade, brought to you by artisan marketplace Amazon Handmade, is a virtual camp experience with craft tutorials you can follow along with from home. The camp "counselors" — AKA featured Handmade Makers — are Kennedy Lowery of Live by Being, Sheena Tahilramani of Banter & Bliss Candle Co., Rebecca Flott of Rebecca Flott Arts, and Megan Benson of Sheep Farm Felt bringing you DIYs for a floral salt soak, scented candle, flower painting, and needle felt hedgehog, respectively. Each tutorial also comes with a supplies list under the video that you can buy directly on Amazon.

But that's not all — there's also a Fireside Chats series with makers, creators, and small business owners that dives deeper into finding your passion, side hustles, and more. Special guests include plant and interior design stylist Hilton Carter, entrepreneur and content creator Rachel Pitzel, and designer and artist Dabito.

Looking for even more summer activities? Amazon also came out with Camp Prime's Handbook in collaboration with Boys & Girls Clubs of America with other craft ideas and bonus reading lists, playlists, and videos for Prime members.
