2018 FRIDAY 1-day

Age 8 to 12, 
(Note: no Aftercare on Fridays)

Doing FRIDAY CAMPS is a great choice for families that can't manage doing a full week of daycamp commuting. So just drop off the kids at camp, and then go hit the beach in Santa Cruz!


The Blacksmith Shop will be open during your all-day Friday Summer Camp. Our Mentors have softer metals for younger kids to pound. Students may also do all of the other fun daily activities:

Please note:  Tribal Wisdom Academy is a summer day camp, 9am to 2:45pm, Monday to Friday for 8-weeks each summer. And the 1-day Blacksmithing Camp is simply part of what all of our camp kids get to do on Fridays. See our Summer Planner Page for how your child may attend the TWA day camp for 5-days, 4-days, 1-day, or half-days. (It is all the same ONE camp). The Friday cost is higher because blacksmithing is added to the standard daily program. Please see the videos on this page.
