Questions to Ask Your Whittling & Woodcraft Camper – Tuesday

If you’re wondering what your camper has been up to this week, here are some questions to get the conversation started…

  1. Monday we began our morning by learning about the basics of whittling.  What are the rules of whittling?  When you met with Maddy individually, what did you decide your whittling goal was for the week?  What are two common mistakes that staff, CITs, and campers make when whittling? 
  2. After learning about whittling Monday we began to build huts and forts that we will lash furniture for later this week.  How can you tell a piece of wood is too rotten to use for building? What were some of the natural materials you used to build your huts and forts?  
  3. Tuesday the weather did not keep us from having a fun day!  What were the activities we did in the shelter?  What were the activities we did outside?  What was your favorite activity we did today?
