Camp Carpenter Basic Information
Camp Carpenter is a weeklong outdoor adventure camp for ages 7-16 where campers work alongside professional artists to design, build and create imaginative worlds of their own making. Youth will learn to use basic hand tools, to take their designs from idea to reality, to collaborate across age groups, to tell imaginative stories through theater games and role playing and more -- all while contributing the betterment of the Detroit/Hamtramck community through the construction of a lasting play space for all.

This summer, two sessions for Camp Carpenter are available : July 22 - 26, 2019 and July 29 - August 2, 2019
***NOTE: Campers Can only sign up for one week in order to give more kids the opportunity to participate.******

Participants must be able to commit to a full week session.

Weekly Rate: Free for youth living in Hamtramck, Highland Park and Detroit District 3. If you are not living in the zone, please pay what you can between $200-$350. Your ability to pay will not impact your child's acceptance into camp; please reach out directly specific concerns regarding tuition and we will do our best to work with you based on your needs.

*Reminder: to keep the program sustainable, purchase materials and supplies, and pay our exceptional artist-staff, we ask that regardless of where you live, if you can financially contribute to the camp, please pay what you are able. It costs us $375 per student to run the program, some of which is supported by grants and donations.*
