Come build amazing eco-friendly creations with us! Tinkering Camp teaches children the skills they need to turn their wildest imaginings into robust items made from wood, plastic, metal, and fabric. While practicing social distancing with their own workbench and set of tools for the week, the group will have activities that encourage socialization and cooperation while building projects on their own to a group theme. With a 5:1 camper to facilitator ratio, our workshop provides a supportive environment for personal growth through skills development and creative construction. This is a COVID-modified version of our flagship program. For safety, and to facilitate making at home after camp is over, add on a new Tinkering Tool Kit to your tinkerer’s home makerspace at the end of the week.

Students will have the exciting opportunity to work with professional artists and technicians both in person and remotely to gain an appreciation of Shakespeare’s verse, as well as a unique exposure to a variety of classic plays.
