Monday – Camp will open will a How To on about 20 different tools and some basic construction standards. Each youth will be allowed to operate an electric miter saw (highly supervised). Indiana Jones is a great game combining memory, hustle, and teamwork
Tuesday – Build Day 1 will focus on framing. We’ll start with a small-scale wall done individually for them to understand the construction concept, moving on to the actual walls working in teams. Capture the Flag is a very popular game at the Playground.
Wednesday – Build Day 2 will focus on finishing the framing, sheathing, and starting the roof. Staff dreams up wild things to do in Crazy Tools and Stuff Relays, including hammering and sawing.
Thursday – On Build Day 3 we’ll finish to roof, construct, and mount the door and other finishing touches. For physical play we’ll bring back the ole Horseshoes game.
Friday – Final Build will focus on painting, tool mounts and shelves and each camper will make their own pennant to attach to the shed as a show of accomplishment. In our Friday tradition we will finish the camp with some fun water play.
Each camp hands out a certificate of completion to each camper!
