What's Included

Learn a new skill and develop a new hobby this summer! Each camper will have the opportunity to work with a variety of tools and materials and every boy will be provided personal guidance while working on two to three individual projects during this special one-week tutorial session. A variety of wood project ideas and wood species will be offered. Possible projects may include constructing a bookshelf, birdhouse, wooden clock, jigsaw puzzle and carving a bowl or candleholder on a wood lathe. Woodworking experience is not required, only a desire to learn new skills. This specialty camp came into being at the request of campers and parents and has limited enrollment available for instructional purposes. We have envisioned this workshop to have the following goals: 1. To provide a hands-on course that initiates the learning of a new skill during the summer and the development of a lifelong hobby. 2. To learn basic carpentry skills and the proper use of a variety of tools. 3. To encourage pride in oneâs work and craftsmanship through projects that a boy wants to take home. Cost: $295 (plus the later purchase of individual project wood) Staff: Andrew Reed, Head of the Middle School, directs and teaches the program. All other staff are members of The Heights faculty. Contact: Andrew Reed at The Heights School, areed@heights.edu Notes: Chesterton Hall is converted to a woodshop with a variety of woodworking tools for this camp.
