In our Summer Camps, we teach youth to respect boundaries and responsibilities that come with working with fire and power tools. See our favorite photos from 2018 summer camps below! 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.
This summer, many campers took more than one class at once. Elisa, age 15, made beautiful bracelets in Youth Blacksmithing I and an incredible utility pack in Youth Leather Working, all in the same week! We also loved seeing the collaborative spirit of our campers. Sibling duo Gabriella and Fletcher collaborated and made a musical tree in Youth TIG Welding.
