Blacksmithing

Blacksmithing is offered as a daily “block” activity meeting all morning or afternoon. Campers must be 10 years of age or older to participate. We start with a safety clinic and then begin learning blacksmithing techniques. The program has a well established progressions and many campers set the sights on the highest rank of Blacksmith Apprentice(Warrior).
