Upon their first meeting 10 years ago, Melissa + Sue knew that if they could find a way to collaborate their talents - magic would occur.
And boy oh boy, were they right! The result was a multi faceted business that brings the love of creativity,
adventure and imagination to the youth of LA.
Known primarily for their magical fairy-inspired day camps, Melissa + Sue’s Fairy Camp LA is built on the curiosity and wonder found
within a child’s imagination. With fairy notes, magical friends, songs, dance, science and a boatload of fun,
Fairy Camp LA celebrates childhood in a safe, nurturing, and silly environment.
Melissa + Sue’s ideas continued to blossom and as a result more magic sparked! Fairy Pen Pals is a unique and customized letter writing program
where your child can exchange letters with their very own fairies. The women also started LAFF club - a weekly meeting with
pre teen girls designed to be a safe space to discuss social, global and personal issues. Melissa + Sue’s ‘host a camp’ program
allows you to organize a day or week of camp in your own backyard on any theme you choose. The business also brings
magic to your child’s birthday parties - organizing everything from decorations, crafts, songs and more!
And now, they are pleased to bring you their latest project, Fairy Camp at Home.
They hope this will help to continue many magical adventures with kids all over the world!
