It all started when…

Our first camp in 2013 was a merry group of 6. In 2017 we in had increased the number to 22. We add a few more each year, and hope to continue to expand. If you're lucky maybe your axe will get an invite.

Our 7th Annual Axe Camp is upon us, and will be held at the Yellowood workshop + farm in Canal Winchester, Ohio for the third time. We will camp for two nights rising in the morning to meet the challenge of splitting logs and learning proper axe care and use. After chopping, there is a log toss competition, tomahawk throwing tourney, as well as other tests of your physical prowess.

In years past campers have been tasked with creating a substantial log bridge, building fireside log furniture, and repairing various farm structures. We will continue our tradition of a team challenge.

At the end of camp awards are given to those who gave outstanding efforts.

 

“Axe camp is a chance to test your grit and what you and your axe are capable of.”
