WonderKids Students Lend a Hand Building Benches for Summer Camp!

At the end of the WonderKids spring session, all the WonderKids got to help assemble the benches that our summer enrichment camp will use for seating under our big tent on Craftsbury Common. A local carpenter, Mike Lapierre, and his kids milled and cut out the pieces for 18 benches. Willey's Store donated the hardware needed for assembly, and the three afterschool sites put in elbow grease! Students learned about doweling and gluing joints, used rubber mallets to close the joints, and for strength, finished off the benches with 3.5" screws. The sturdy eight-foot benches will be the centerpiece of our camp community space. Thank you to everyone who lent a hand!
