Last week was the first week of The Crucible’s Youth Summer Camps and we saw astronauts, noise machines, rainbow glass mushrooms, and more walk out of our studios at the end of camp. Every single student in Youth MIG Welding got excited about making furniture and left with a table or chair of their own design. It was a jam packed week and there are still five more weeks to go!

In our Summer Camps, we teach youth to respect the boundaries and responsibilities that come with working with fire and power tools. We believe that by introducing responsibility in working with industrial arts, youth will work safely and expand their creative horizons. The Crucible is one of the few places in the country that enable youth to pour molten bronze in the foundry, blow glass in the hot shop, and work hot steel in the smithy.

Throughout Summer Camps, we will be updating the Youth Summer Camp Photo Gallery below—make sure to check back for our favorite moments from camp.
