"DIY Kids" is an enrichment program designed to teach the proper and safe use of hand tools and general woodworking skills to girls and boys between the ages of 9-16 years old. Through a series of lessons and projects, these young builders will gain the abilities and confidence to complete increasingly complicated projects as the program progresses. Students will learn new skills that will last a lifetime, while also using their creativity and imagination to put their own personal touch on projects. Giving a child the opportunity to develop confidence in their abilities to work with their hands is an experience that could help shape their future.
Summer Camp is a week-long immersion for kids between the ages of 9-16 years old. Along the way, students will gain critical woodworking skills including the use of hand and power tools, planing and finishing custom projects, joinery techniques, and more.

Each day, campers will put their projects to the test during outdoor breaks in the park.

Included in the session, students may have the opportunity to play other instruments, as is often done in a typical band experience.
Classes run on a two-week cycle, Monday through Thursday, from 11am-1pm at Guitar Bar. The performance will be on the Thursday evening of the final day of the session at 7pm. Performance spaces will be announced soon, but in the past they have been at Maxwell's and Mulligan's.
