Check out our Summer 2020 Schedule (updated 6/6/2020)

Our Virtual Workshop is Live!

We wanted to make sure our students, families, and friends of the workshop could still enjoy the Workshop land.  Check back often as we build out our virtual workshop.

Announcement Regarding Summer 2020

Heldeberg Workshop offers an incredibly unique experience for your children and one we feel would be difficult to replicate under current requirements of social distancing due to the pandemic. This is why we are saddened to share that after several in-depth discussions among the Board members, we have decided that we are canceling the traditional 2020 summer session. While we are disappointed by the cancellation and its effects on our staff, teachers, students, and families, we believe this decision is in the best interests and safety of all involved.

The good news is that we are taking the summer to make significant updates on The Land. We will be: 

    • Exploring improvements to the boardwalk in the swamp
    • Developing improved maps of the Land and marked trail system
    • Repairing leantos and outhouses
    • Investigating a better water supply system
    • Renovating the archery building
    • Removing invasive plant species like multiflora rose and buckthorn

We are looking into offering a few online and possibly a few on the land classes if we can do it safely, this summer. We appreciate your patience and support as we work to bring The Land to you this summer. Be on the lookout for emails to follow in the coming weeks. 

Thank you for your past support and most importantly, take care!
