For kids at Summer Edventure Camp, Fridays means learning and building in woodworking class. Otto resident Paul Chew is the instructor and has a lifelong affinity for working with wood.
For more than 30 years, Chew has been helping children enjoy woodworking. It began when his church started a program called Nifty Gifty for Christmas. Parents helped children make gifts to give away each Christmas.
“Nifty Gifty challenged me to come up with a new idea each year and to design the projects so even the littlest kids could be successful,” said Chew.
His background in teaching middle and high school industrial arts or “shop” came in handy.
