Michael’s Wood Shop

Welcome to

at Camp William B. Snyder

Michael’s Wood Shop was designed with the intent that it will be available for general use by the NCAC Scouting community for Scout, Unit or District events, merit badge days, summer camp programs and camp service projects. We have a broad array of hand and power tools, sufficient work space for large projects and unit events and the shop is outfitted with dust collection/dust filtration equipment. Please visit our photo gallery to view photos of the shop layout and work space, power equipment and dust control system.

How to Reserve – Training Required

1. Review the shop rules. In order to use the wood shop, you will need to have an adult trained as a Trained Wood Shop Leader or will need to arrange to have a Shop Steward available to host your event. In addition, you must have at least one adult present at all times with current First Aid/CPR certification.

2. Check the list of Scheduled Events to verify the space is not already reserved.

3.  Contact Camp Snyder to request use of the Woodshop @ Camp.Snyder@scouting.org

Beginning in April, one week of evening sessions will be set aside monthly for Unit reservations.  We will require a minimum of 5 participants for a unit reservation.


Michael’s Woodshop is pleased to offer a wide range of activities for Scouts of all ages. Please see our activity schedule.
