Winter Camp

This winter, Tinkering Camp is returning to big tools and Big Builds! Following evolving protocols for school-age children, we’ve updated our program to provide access to power saws, crafting tools, lumber, cardboard, and piles and piles of creative reuse materials. Tinkerers will remain masked and follow social distancing practices while working together in teams to dream, design, and build projects as wild as their imaginations.Please read our In-Person COVID Policy.

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. With a 5:1 camper to facilitator ratio, our workshop provides a supportive environment for personal growth through skills development and creative construction. Campers use hand and power tools and work together to create huge and amazing projects.
