Summer Camp Description:

TheChildrensWoodshopBus  camps for girls and boys 2nd – 6th grades  will park at the Mission Bay Montessori Academy (MBMA)      2640 Soderblom Avenue, San Diego 92122 for 7 separate weeks of half-day camps July 6 – August 21, 2020.  $180 per camper.

This is an exciting and rewarding experience for motivated children. Emphasizing safe and easy techniques small groups of beginning or experienced campers will use basic hand tools and clear sugar pine to construct projects of their choice from several categories which include floating, rolling, and non-flying toys, desktop and other useful projects.   In addition to miter box sawing, campers will learn how to use a coping saw to make curved projects (dogs, ducks, dinosaurs, etc.)  A portion of each day will include tool maintenance and some specialty techniques.

Please note that this is not not a “free style, make-anything-you-want” camp. The kid-tested project ideas are there to jump-start the creative process and campers will progress at their own pace to build 7-10 projects during the week.

Each camp is five half-days 9:00-11:30 a.m. or 12:30-3:00 p.m. and is limited to 7 children per group.

Returning and experienced students are encouraged to build more complex projects as their skills advance.   See the Project Photos page to look at examples of assorted miter box sawing projects and coping saw cutouts. Time and degree of difficulty is indicated by an asterisk * rating system.
