Children: 12pm , Adults: 1pm
Join us for the 4th annual Soap Box Derby! Six weeks of campers join neighbors and friends race their handmade, non motorized contraptions down 17th Street!
THE RACE WILL BEGIN AT NOON, SO RACERS WILL NEED TO CHECK IN BY 11:00 AM!!!
ADULT & CHILD RACERS THAT DID NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE WORKSHOP SHOULD CONTACT US AT email@example.com FOR FREE REGISTRATION!
We will introduce the children to a variety of tools and supervise them closely while they build their contraptions with hammers, nails, handsaws, screws, etc. ALL TOOL USE UNDER STRICT ADULT SUPERVISION. We will encourage the kids to plan on paper, sketch images, make drawings of their invention, and think out of the box. We will also spend time outside, collecting found objects and materials, and testing our designs at each stage. We will also take breaks to play ball and have free play at the park/playground: (the time spent will depend on the different kids and their needs).
We have access to an outdoor space with a slight incline one half block away that we will be using in addition to the Gallery. This will serve as the perfect test track for our soap boxes in their different building stages. The culmination of the camp will be the 3rd annual 17th street soap box derby.
