Intro to Classic Car Restoration for High School Kids
Here’s a neat thing we wanted to share with our readers.
It’s a summer camp for high school students to learn about classic car restorations.
This overnight camp teaches high school kids all about sheet-metal forming, automotive painting and other classic car restoration skills.
It’s being held June 16-19, the Pennsylvania College of Technology, which is in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The school is affiliated with Penn State University and offers a full program in automotive restoration.
Camp fees are very reasonable. It’s just $375 and includes meals, housing and all camp activities. It’s open to students entering grades 10-12.
The camp web site promises this about the program:
“Do you want to learn how to preserve antique cars from 1900-1975? Participants will discover what it takes to return vintage cars and trucks to their former glory while they immerse themselves in the world of automotive restoration. Workshops include sheet metal forming, upholstery, pin striping, paint simulation, and more! Participants will get to keep what they create in the metal forming and upholstery workshops. Also included is a field trip to the Eagles Mere Auto Museum where over 75 cars from the 1950’s and 1960’s are on display.”
Registration is available on the camp web site at https://www.pct.edu/pre-college-programs/automotive-restoration. Hurry, enrollment ends May 31, 2019.
