Youth Programs Winter Camp

This year’s week long Winter Camp is Level 2 where we will challenge young students to use traditional and modern tools to work through projects and make things they never thought they could. Each day the kids will use real tools on real projects making plenty of saw dust and metal chips along the way. No wimpy projects here as we instill confidence and critical thinking into all of our students! Winter camp is a compressed version of our traditional 12-week programs. In fact, taking the Level 1, 2, or 3 winter camp will qualify the kids to go straight in to the next Level 12-week program in the spring with our existing students. Students must have completed Level 1 prior to registering for this Level 2 session. Space is still available – register today at  http://urbanworkshop.net/wintercamp/

Each individual class introduces participants to a new group of tools and techniques, and includes a project.

The goal of this program is to help build confidence and independence by teaching your child practical skills, as well as provide career exploration opportunities that will benefit them for a lifetime, as they experience firsthand engineering and technical problem solving using both traditional and high-end equipment to achieve a solution.

THE FINE PRINT

All students start at Level 1 and progress to the next level upon successful completion of each level. Starting with Level 1, students learn how to use basic hand tools, and help develop the “feel” needed to successfully work with different materials and mechanical systems. This understanding provides a solid foundation for levels 2–4, where increasingly more powerful tools will be introduced, along with more complicated projects.

Prerequisite(s): Level 1: None! Levels 2 through 4 require completion of the previous level.
Minimum number of kids to make a class: 8, Maximum number of kids per class: 16
Safety: Closed-toed shoes, long pants and shirts that cover the shoulders are mandatory.
Cost: $800 per student. Includes project materials and the use of Urban Workshop’s tools. We are an approved vendor with the Charter Schools listed on our website and your Charter School funds can be used to offset the cost of the program.

We have a 2,000 sq ft event hall with an adjoined 16,000 sq ft workshop and offers the ability to hold corporate and team building events, build competitions, charity events, school and training programs, and parties.  The facility is complete with a Bose public address system and Dell over head projection system. The large space allows for many table configurations. We have a kitchen that can be used for staging and serving to large groups. We invite you visit Urban Workshop to see the space first hand and envision the possibilities of this truly unique and flexible space, or contact us at events@urbanworkshop.net to book your event today!

New for Fall 2017 is our Level 5 Expert Kids Program, which is our most challenging class series yet and will reinforce good shop work habits as the students learn even more advanced skills. The goal is for students to be safe and comfortable in all areas of an open shop environment. Students will learn the skills needed to intermingle technologies from other shop areas.

Beginner, intermediate and advanced classes for ages 10-16 start the week of September 10, 2017 – click here for complete details and to enroll today!
