We make woodworking with hand tools empowering, engaging, and easy. How? We train and equip your staff to teach hand-tool woodworking in your current space. Maplewoodshop teaches Jewish values and life skills including confidence, grit, Tikkun Olam, and problem-solving through woodworking. Your campers will grow as they explore woodworking and its many benefits.

“Woodworking has been the coolest thing ever. It is new, tactile, and really engaging. It brings kids out of what they would normally expect to do in camp. Our camp woodshop is portable and travels back to the JCC for the rest of the year. After our first summer, next summer can only be bigger and better!” —Dana Gottfried, Director, CDR, JCC Metrowest
