2020 has been a challenging year for so many people and there was no exception for the world of summer camps. At the beginning of June I wasn’t even completely sure that I’d hold any camps at all this year. Luckily, by reducing the number of campers to 3 per session and by instituting a wide variety of new safety protocols we were able to run 7 woodworking camps this year!
Now I’m starting to plan for 2021 and, hopefully, a return to a more normal way of doing things. Typically camps can accommodate 5 or 6 kids each and are divided by age and experience level. Each camp features a main project that all the campers build and then a chance to design their own project and learn the skills of drafting, planning, choosing the woods and finally building. This past summer, campers created things like wind chimes, picture frames, light boxes, boomerangs, ping pong ball shooters and even Mjolnir….Thor’s Hammer!
If you have a child that might be interested in joining the fun for Summer 2021 please fill out the Google Form and I’ll add you to the email list. Camps fill very quickly with limited spacing so definitely get on the mailing list.
