We accept new students at YouthWork and Learn throughout the year. Here’s what our latest student says about his first days with us:
“My first two weeks at Smokey House were exciting.
Monday, we completed work on the workbench. I did sanding, polyurethane, and built the shelf.
On Wednesday, Robin taught us how to do chip carving. We did the map of New England on the pond. We measured the lines on ice, drew them with sticks, and covered them with fire ash. Friday, we made boxes out of pine and we cut down little trees to make wood mauls.
On Monday, we went rock climbing at the Green Mountain Climbing Center in Rutland. It was pretty good. I want to go back. The only thing I hated about it was the shoes, because they’re so tight, they’re uncomfortable. We went to Subway for lunch.
Today, Lucas made chicken cordon bleu, and it was amazing! We did more decorations on the boxes, and some people made wood mauls.
My old school was pretty boring. This school is hands-on projects and learning. I like it better here.”
