In today's world kids rarely get the opportunity to work with their hands. To build a relationship with tools, with wood and their own creativity. To feel pride in a job well done.
Our woodshop program has been created to provide youth the opportunity to learn the basic concepts while fostering self-esteem, and self-confidence.
Kids will experience the excitement of building a variety of really fun projects while learning a wide range of woodworking skills such as sawing, hammering, measuring, drilling, rasping, sanding, painting, and many more. With the guidance of our instructor they learn to safely use the right tools to build and create fantastic art and crafts.
Campers will learn basic techniques such as how to hold the camera, close up vs. distance shots, check your surroundings to avoid blurry photos, among other tips.
After our introduction, they venture off on our 5-acre farm filled with interesting objects to get inspired.
Once they are satisfied with their photos they head back to our photo studio to get creative. Each class offers up different themes to inspire our campers, but more often they come up with their own inspiring idea. A wonderful opportunity to spend time outdoors getting your creative mind stimulated.
