Along with all our old favorites, LightHouse is thrilled to announce a shiny new virtual youth program, Polishing to Perfection: LightHouse Student Woodworking Club. During the last few years of teen camp session at Enchanted Hills Camp, our youth have been lucky to have a group of wood workers inspire our campers to take up the hobby. This new monthly virtual wood polishing club is designed to connect LightHouse and EHC friends throughout the year while polishing wood into art. A woodworker who is blind or has low vision will join us each month and share their story and wisdom with the next generation of artists.

Students who sign up for the program one week in advance will receive the basic materials and equipment to get started with wood polishing. Those students who remain active in the program and improve their skill will become eligible for additional raw materials that they can turn into art or gifts for loved ones. The polishing party takes place on the second Saturday of the month at 7:00 pm. Each gathering will have time dedicated to update others about their projects, learn a little about that month’s mentor, and most importantly have as much time as the evening will allow to hangout and polish with your blind and low vision friends.

What: Polishing to Perfection: LightHouse Student Woodworkers Club
When: Second Saturdays of the month, starting September 11 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Who: Youth who are blind or have low vision
RSVP: to Jamey Gump JGump@lighthouse-sf.org or 415-694-7372. RSVP by September 4 to have materials mailed to you.

If you are interested in joining any of these great programs, contact Jamey Gump JGump@lighthouse-sf.org or give the Youth Programs team a call at 415-694-7372. Be sure to check our online calendar as new events are added all the time. We hope to see you at one, two, or all our fall Youth Programs.
