WHAT IS THE PATCHWORK MARKETPLACE?
The Patchwork Marketplace is a website for camp and community recreation professionals to come together and share their expertise, insights and original resources with one another through paid and free downloadable products useful for camps, recreation departments, youth groups, after school programs, and other family and youth facilities, companies and organizations.
We firmly believe that even though camp and community recreation professionals “aren’t in it for the money”, they should still be compensated for their hard work and great ideas. We also believe that giving everyone a chance to share their knowledge and ideas by selling their materials at a reasonable price will help the the camp and youth recreation industries grow and improve.
WHAT IS THE COST TO JOIN?
It is free to become a Vendor and/or a Customer.
WHAT IS A "RESOURCE" OR "PRODUCT"?
We sue the term “resource” and “product” interchangeably to encapsulate any collection of materials that can be used to support a camp or recreation program, including activities, stories or books, presentations, games, printables, songs, scripts, training materials and evaluations.
WHO CREATES THE RESOURCES FOR THIS SITE?
Anyone with a registered vendor account can offer their resource materials through Patchwork. Most resources have been created by camp and recreation professionals.

DO I HAVE TO HAVE AN ACCOUNT TO PURCHASE RESOURCES?
Yes. The reason being, that you are purchasing digital items. By having an account, your digital items will be available in your account in case your hard drive crashes or you accidentally delete it from you computer.
Of course, technology is not without it’s hiccups, and this site could go down as well one day. So it’s always good to download anything you purchase to your computer, external drive, your Dropbox account, or anywhere else you keep your files. Think of your account here on Patchwork as a back-up for your digital purchases.
