Patchwork is an online marketplace where camp and recreation professionals
share their expertise, insights and original resources through paid and free downloadable products.

Creative Ideas and Systems

You’ll find loads of creative content on this site, from programming to admin systems and more. All of the writers/creators selling on Patchwork are youth recreation professionals, from camp directors to gymnastics coaches and city recreation specialists.


All the resources on Patchwork are currently downloadable. There is no need to wait for anything to be shipped. We may set-up the option for vendors to sell physical products in the near future, but for now everything is digital (PDFs, Word docs, etc.)

Save Lots of Time

The resources here will no doubt save you the hours and hours of time that we all tend to spend creating, planning and testing. While one resource may save you a few hours, another one may save you days or longer.

Welcome to the new Patchwork Marketplace. We recently changed everything about Patchwork from the ground up (shopping cart system, vendor system, site theme, etc.). The change was made to create a better experience for customers, vendors and the administrators.

However, change is never easy and this one is no exception. None of the information from the previous site was able to carry over to the new system. This means that all the shops and resources we had on Patchwork previously has to be recreated and re-uploaded. Also, because of some technical difficulties making the switch, we will have to recreate other pages like our FAQs page, all our podcast show notes, etc.

If you previously had an account, you will need to create a new one. You can do that by clicking on the login icon in the top right. If you would like to become a vendor, you’ll be able to do that after you create your customer account.

Hopefully, our previous vendors will be reopening their shops as they find the time. Everybody is getting ready for summer right now.

We are excited about the new site and hope you like the layout so far. If you have any questions feel free to contact us.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
