Pioneer Camp: Woodworking & Craftsmanship

Overview

Artisan. Hand-crafted. Curated. Give your son the chance to discover with his own hands the joy and wonder of woodworking! With the help of closely guided instruction, the boys will build items to bring home and take pride in. On Monday, they will embark with little more than a design sketch, and by Friday they will be bringing home the fruits of their labor. Your son will learn the importance of focus, attention to detail, and dexterity as he creates something from scratch and picks up basic skills in using hand tools and integral materials. Each day will start by highlighting different crafts and craftsmen, and end with some fun and games at the beautiful Sparhawk grounds.

Past projects have included:

  • Adirondack chairs
  • Serving trays
  • Cornhole boards
  • Toolboxes
  • Slingshots
  • Ping pong paddles
  • Picture Frames
  • Insect boxes
  • Catapults
  • Treehouse construction

What’s the schedule of an average day of Woodworking Camp?
Camp runs each day from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Drop-off starts at 9:30 AM. Parents should pick their campers by 4:15 PM.

Where does the camp take place?
All activities take place on the Sparhawk grounds and in the Sparhawk Barn.

What should my son wear to camp?
Campers should dress in comfortable, warm-weather athletic attire and bring a bag lunch and drink from home.

What else does my son need to bring with him to camp?
As we will be outdoors for much of the camp, campers should bring plenty of water, sunscreen, and bug spray!

Do Woodworking Camp t-shirts cost extra?
The price is included in the camp fee. Each camper will receive a Sparhawk Woodworking Camp t-shirt on the first day of camp.
