What is Creative University?

So much more than a scrapbooking retreat, Create U will immerse you in creativity, allow you to explore mediums of all types, and rejuvenate your spirit. A perfect blend of scheduled events, hands-on Creative Classes and leisure time to spend as you wish. Participate in optional swaps and exhanges, schedule a massage, work on your own projects and enjoy yourself. At Creative University you'll understand the meaning of our motto "Inspiration, Education, Relaxation." 

New for 2014

How will you spend your time?

Arrive on Thursday* for the optional extra day to get settled into your sleeping cabin, meet the other students and explore the camp. Unpack your creative supplies in your day room and leave them, no need to pack up until you're ready to go home. Enjoy a day of unscheduled time to craft on your own projects, hike along the scenic trails of Lake Coeur d'Alene, or head into Coeur d'Alene for shopping or site seeing. For dinner, dig into a delicious home-style meal served in the beautiful lodge-style dining hall with stunning lake views and crackling fireplace.

Friday is a mix of self-paced activities, scheduled events and freestyle fun. Enjoy a continental breakfast and grab a latte from the coffee bar. Lunch is provided for all Thursday-arrival students. Friday students feel free to arrive anytime. Work at your own pace in the Cards n' Techniques Boutique, open all afternoon. Dinner served for the entire student body, followed by a hands on Creative Class.

Saturday begins with a hot 'n hearty breakfast in the dining hall. Get ready for a jam-packed day of Creative Classes led by a hand-picked staff of amazingly talented teachers. Dabble in a variety of mediums, classes include scrapbooking, cardmaking, and jewelry-making. Lunch and dinner provided. After the evening's Student Assembly with fun games and prizes, relax and craft the night away on your own projects.

Sunday you can sleep in a bit and then join the students for a Sunday Brunch buffet that is out of this world! Laugh and hug all your new-found friends, get lots of group pictures and make plans to visit again next year because you will be missing Creative University before it's even over.

Students may depart at anytime on Sunday. Craft rooms and sleep cabins will remain available until 2:00 pm.
