Tinkering School: 1-Week Summer Camp – August 21-25

Date(s) - Monday, Aug 21st-Friday, Aug 25th

Ottawa Tool Library


Do you want your kid(s) to learn skills AND have fun this summer? Have them join us for a week of exciting woodworking projects!

The Tinkering School of the Ottawa Tool Library is offering a one-week camp for children (9 -14 years) to learn wood working and other DIY skills by building a series of different projects over the course of the week.

Camp runs from 9 am – 3 pm daily.

Our instructors bring a vast experience in teaching children and will always focus on safety in the WorkSpace and with each other.

Participants will be able to customize and construct a variety of projects while learning about design factors to take into consideration, measuring and marking, cutting, drilling, routing, sanding, gluing, and screwing. Everyone will make something they’ll feel proud of and leave with the knowledge to build more!

Space is limited to eight participants with an instructor and assistant.

Prices have increased for everything during the pandemic, wood being just one of them. Please note that we’re extending the 20% off the regular price to all OTL members.

Before selecting and signing up for this camp, please be sure that your child understands that the activities will require their attention and maturity. We are working with tools that must be used carefully to ensure everyone’s safety. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Make sure this camp date works for your family. Refunds will not be issued other than in extraordinary circumstances and with medical documentation.
