Just a group of women that love to Papercraft with Kimberly and share food & craft ideas. Tucked away in Northwest Ohio. Be inspired by the peaceful surroundings that will calm you and let your creativity flow. Camp Widewater is nestled in the arms of the Maumee River and the fertile farmlands surrounding Grand Rapids, Ohio.
We will be sharing Harmony Lodge, a completely accessible one-story, carpeted, heated/air conditioned building, - with media capabilities and Wireless internet throughout. Camp Widewater facilities are fully accessible for all users.
Harmony Lodge is part of a smoke– free camp with designated outside areas only for smoking.

Need a break from scraping?  The fresh air will spark new ideas with over 100 acres of gentle hills, new grasslands, old forests, and miles of beautiful, winding, walking/running trails. Or  Relax in the shared fireside area with friends (or meet new ones), complete with wide screen for watching DVD's
Scrapbook or Craft in the reserved dining hall on your own personal 8 foot table. Sleep in one of the 4 assigned to our group dorm rooms (with individual thermostats & wardrobes sleeping 4 to 8 people each). Our wing has double sided restrooms with stall type showers. Crops are limited to just 16 people for fun and easy family style food preparation.
Meal planning is a breeze with such a small number of people. The kitchen/Kaatz conference room is reserved for our group for preparing and eating meals. kitchen includes oven w/stove top, microwave, commercial sized fridge, and lots of counter space to bring in your own crock-pots. The group is divided up by friends, two weeks in advance of weekend and assigned to purchase and make one meal. Trying and sharing new recipes has all just become another fun Crop Camp tradition.
There is a coffee maker and boiling water is always on tap for tea or try one of Kim's exclusive Cocoas . There is also an Ice machine and Freezer on the premises. A honor system soda fountain has been added to our weekend with a .50 per drink asked.
