Welcome to the ChildrensWoodshopBus website. This mobile “classroom” is a converted transit bus with individual, adjustable workbenches. The program is designed to teach children how to use hand tools safely and effectively. The woodshop bus locates at various San Diego public and private schools for weekly after-school enrichment classes (K-5th) and half-day summer camps (2nd – 6th grades)
We are now registering 2nd – 6th grades for summer camps in the 92122 area. We have 8 separate half-day camps from June 24 – August 16. Each camp is 9:00 – 11:30 a.m. or 12:30 – 3:00 p.m. The fee is $180 and includes all materials and safety eyewear. This is not a free-style “make-anything-you-want camp.” An assortment of kid-tested boats, planes, cars, and desktop/useful ideas are available to jump-start the building process. Once construction techniques are established, creative changes are encouraged. Campers build skills and progress at their own pace during the week. In addition to miter box/crosscut sawing techniques, campers will learn how to use a coping saw to make a simple puzzle or other curved project. Please check out the complete summer camp description or enroll on the class/camp registration page. The project photos page will show a wide range of project ideas.
