Small Business classes on Vashon Island, WA

Are you a crafter, maker, or artist who is grappling with the hardships of running your own small business? Are you looking for small business classes, or new ways to connect with other vendors, makers, and creative small business owners while learning new ways to move your business forward? Come join us for a weekend full of educational sessions at our small business retreat, Camp ThunderCraft!

We are so pumped for camp this year! We also want to address the COVID-19 situation as we’re sure many of you are wondering how Camp might be affected by it. 
At this point in time we are not canceling camp! We are closely monitoring advice from local health resources, and will be distributing more information as the weekend approaches to ensure that everyone is taking the best precautions they can to stay healthy. If the situation intensifies between now and camp and if we or Camp Burton feels that it would be dangerous at that point to proceed with the event, we will update all registered campers accordingly. If at that point it seems that canceling Camp ThunderCraft is the best course of action, your registration fees will be refunded in full. Your health is our biggest concern and we want to reassure you of that.

Camp ThunderCraft Mission:

  • Camp Thundercraft aims to create a space where small creative business owners can come together to learn from one another, inspire each other to continue down our own creative paths, and connect with one another to learn better business practices FOR THEMSELVES.
  • To build relationships through a safe space that encourages idea sharing, self-reflection, and collaboration, that will extend to the outside world even after the weekend is over.
  • To learn from each other’s experiences running small craft businesses and to magnify that knowledge in a focused, secluded environment, generating ideas for new directions in which to grow.

Camp ThunderCraft wouldn’t be nearly as awesome without our generous sponsors! All these wonderful businesses are helping out in some way to make sure the weekend is super fantastic.
