This is a unique opportunity for campers to develop confidence and sense of purpose, and participate in real-life construction projects at the ranch. Campers will get training in safe building skills, learn how to handle tools, and collaborate on both larger and smaller woodworking and construction projects. Last year’s Construction Campers built 13 beds for the new Bunkhouse, which we’ll all be enjoying for many years to come!
We’ll also spend time on the land looking for materials and gaining inspiration from the natural world, and we’ll take some field trips to friends and neighbors to learn about blacksmithing, finish carpentry, earthen plasters, and creative green-building strategies.
**Note that Construction Campers won’t be riding horses during this camp, but will get to experience all the other aspects of Ekone Magic!**
