Here is a great opportunity to obtain a wonderful new piece of outdoor furniture, AND support the wonderful ministry of Rock Point Summer Camp. This Adirondack Chair was built from locally sourced pine by Rock Point Summer Camp campers and painted by RPSC counselor Hannah Foote, college junior, and environmental educator and artist. 100% proceeds will go to support camper scholarships. 50% of RPSC campers receive partial or full scholarship.
You will be asked to set up an account in Bidding Owl in order to bid. This does not require you provide a credit card number. We will ask the winner to submit a check as payment. If outside Vermont, winner will be responsible for shipping costs. If winner is in Vermont, we will arrange for pickup or delivery.
About the project:
The organization Girls at Work joined Rock Point Summer Camp Campers and Counselors this summer for an exciting project. Ten girls, ages 7-10, worked in teams to build successfully five Adirondack chairs under the guidance and support of Girls at Work. They learned how to safely use power tools, wood working skills and team work.
At the closing debrief circle, the campers all sat in the chairs they built. The leader asked each girl, “What happened for you today?” They answered:
“I used a lot of power tools today that I’ve never used before today. When I saw that power saw I kind of freaked out. But when I was using it, I wasn’t freaked out any more. I’m proud of myself!”
“I built an awesome chair today.”
“I learned I am able to build a chair. I learned that whatever a boy says I can’t make, I know it’s not true.”
