Outdoor Design & Building
June 21–June 25 and June 28–July 2 (register for one or two weeks)
Monday–Friday, 9am–3pm
Ages 12–16
Teaching Artists: Chip Heuer and Christine Mitchell

Experience hands-on training in outdoor design and building in this program that’s great for teens who are aspiring builders, landscape designers, architects, artists, and more! Work with experienced craftspeople to learn basic skills in design and woodworking. Trail blaze, clear, trim, and build outdoor environments utilizing natural resources. Learn the fundamentals of working with hand tools to create small items to keep, and contribute to larger, ongoing projects to remain on AMP’s property, including instruments made from repurposed materials. Last summer’s projects included expanding an existing tree house and designing/building furniture. Brainstorm with the teaching artists to imagine and create structures around AMP’s natural landscape that will be used by children who attend programs throughout the year.
