Blacksmithing  ​-  Summer Day Camp


Grades 6-10     June 24-28, 2019

Grades 6-10     July 8-12, 2019

Grades 6-10     August 5-9, 2019

We're so excited to announce this next-level challenge.  Blacksmithing students will split their days between two primary focuses:

  • Blacksmithing:  Learn the art of creating useful tools by heating metal in the forge and shaping it on the anvil.  Many techniques will be explored, and students will come home with hand-made items.
  • Nature-Connection:  Taking a break from the forge, students will get plenty of dirt-time in the forest deepening their Nature-Connection practices through stories, games, activities, challenges and exploration.  ​
