Forged in Fire – Young Blacksmithing Camp
- July 1st – 3rd
- 7:00pm to 8:00pm
- Grades: 4th – 7th
- Instructor: Gregg Kremer
Who doesn’t want to forge something in fire…come ready to see sparks fly! This introduction to blacksmithing teaches campers the fundamentals — basic hammer skills, heat-treating, and how to manipulate metal as they learn how to make basic hooks and tools. Safety training included. Campers will need to wear blue jeans and closed toe shoes. Due to sparks, shirts and pants need to be 100% cotton.
Members: $75 Non-members: $100
Scholarships available based on financial need. If your student qualifies for the Free and Reduced Lunch Program at their school, they may be eligible to attend a summer camp free of charge due to support from our corporate sponsors.
