Vacation Camp: Three-Day Toboggan Building Workshop

Chewonki Winter Vacation Camp. Students, between 5th and 8th grade

5th - 8th Grade Boys & Girls February 2013 -- Tuesday-Thursday (with a Thursday overnight in canvas wood-heated yurts.)

Every participant of this three-day workshop will have the chance to build a beautiful handmade toboggan from start to finish. The project will include steam-bending, fastening, sanding, and varnishing red oak planks and frames harvested locally from Chewonki's 400-acre forested woodlands.

The workshop will be directed up by Chewonki woodshop and waterfront manager Scott Peterson, an experienced boatbuilder with a great passion for wood.
