Tinkering School Summer Camp: Zero Waste Living

Date(s) - Monday, Jul 6th-Friday, Jul 10th


Join us for a week of learning about how you can reduce the plastic waste in your life and make your own zero waste toolkit!

Design and create all the tools you need to reduce your impact on the environment. Kids will learn about the importance of reducing waste, then, we’ll put it into practice and make our very own zero-waste kits. From sewing to woodworking, we’ll learn all kinds of new skills that will help us design and make our own lunch boxes, containers, cutlery, reusable bags and more!

Camps are open to kids 8-12 years old and run from 9 am – 4 pm.

At the Ottawa Tool Library Tinkering School we have a low child to instructor ratio (6:1 or better). We’re committed to environmental education through hands on, experiential, and collaborative activities that allow children to learn through making.

Pre and Post-Care is available from 8:30am – 9:00am and 4:00pm – 4:30pm for an additional $25

Our second week of summer camp is Aug. 10-14th, 2020.

Before selecting and signing up for a workshop, 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 be sure to contact us.

We are committed to making our programs available to everyone. We are able to offer financial assistance to one student. Please contact the Tinkering School Coordinator prior to registration for more information.
