Day Camp: Home Depot Kids' Workshop

Day Camp isn’t just about having fun, it’s also about learning.  Today the campers did both when the Home Depot Kids’ Workshop came to South Franklin.  Kids’ Workshop is a program that teaches kids about tool safety and simple skills to “instill a sense of accomplishment.”  The campers at South Franklin were fortunate to have Danny from the Home Depot come to camp and bring the Kids’ Workshop program with him.

Each camper was given a kid-sized orange Home Depot apron and a small workshop project kit.  Campers could choose to build either a helicopter or a sailboat.  After some safety instructions and a quick reminder to follow the directions included in each kit, the campers got to work.

We're grateful to Danny and the Kids’ Workshop program for taking the time to teach the campers while having fun at the same time.  For more information on the Kids’ Workshop program, visit their web site.
We're also grateful to our volunteers.  We had a great volunteer turnout today, which enabled the campers to receive the personal attention they needed while working on their projects.  It's not too late to volunteer.  Visit our Google Doc signup page for more information!
