After almost 5 years of owning Itty Bitty Camps, I’m ready to move on, and I’m hoping that someone would like to buy it from me and keep it going. I bought Itty Bitty when my daughter was 3 and my son was 1, and it was the prefect way for me to be a stay-at-home mom, but also have an income. The kids came with me to many of my camps, and they still do now at (nearly) 8 and 5 years old. My older child could teach Itty Bitty at this point.
If you purchased Itty Bitty Camps, you would get:
- all electronic media and accounts associated with Itty Bitty Camps and Wild Child Seattle
- an established client list and base that are active and several who attend all year
- Itty Bitty Camps curriculum and felt board materials for 5 different habitats-pond, forest, beach, wetland and meadow
- an established relationship with Seattle Parks Dept
I am moving on from Itty Bitty for many reasons, and one of them is that we cannot operate at Discovery Park anymore. I want to be clear that anyone who takes over Itty Bitty Camps will need to move to a new park (trust me, I tried to stay, and it’s not happening). I thought about moving to Carkeek Park, which would be easy enough, but the reality is that I’m ready to do something different.
Itty Bitty Camps is a business that can be very flexible in terms of income-it all depends on how much you want to work, and how many parks you want to work at. For me, it has fluctuated from less than 10% of our household income in my first year, to up to 25% in later years.
If you are thinking that a nature camp might be a good next step for you, send me an email at Hillary@wildchildseattle.com
