7 Days | 6 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Within the scope of box making there is a lot of room to be creative. Boxes can have different style lids with different ways to open. Using different joinery methods can add visual interest to a box. Adding small feet or an interior tray are some of the options to add distinction. There is no limit to expressing one’s creativity. Several different plans will be provided; students can follow a plan, or adapt a plan to create a unique box. Depending on a student’s level of experience, this project can be simple or more complex to add a challenge. Design and layout, methods of preparing and cutting stock, joinery methods – miter joints and dovetailing, glue ups and clamping, preparing projects for finishing, and applying finishes will all be covered in this workshop. All levels are welcome.
