In a given summer, a Woodcrafter may experience anywhere from seven to fifteen different classes. Woodcraft Camp offers over 80 different classes, leaving room for each camper to experience something new.

The start of classes is one of the most exciting times for Woodcrafters! It is here, that many campers find lifelong interests. Each class lasts for 45 minutes.
