Summer and Break Camps
Half day summer camps for kids ages 6-13 at our Columbia City Workshop and Community Centers throughout Seattle. Camps run 3+ hours for 3-5 days. Our camps are a great way to immerse your young person in the thrill of woodworking! Themed and regular building camps are an great way for kids to try something new while gaining invaluable skills. New in 2019: Girl Power, Puppet Theatre, Castles and Framed in Art.
Kids’ Carpentry Birthday Parties are a 2 hour hands-on toy building event. First, our instructors lead a tutorial on measuring, tools and safety. Then, each child will choose the project they want to make and will build it from scratch. At the end, kids will have the opportunity to paint their projects while you set up cake or other snacks.
Birthday parties are for kids ages 6 to 13 and can serve groups as small as 5 and as big as 15. The birthday child is free, contact us for pricing. Parties can be booked any day of the week with advance notice. For examples of projects, please see our Project Gallery page.
