Boat Building

Campers will be guided through the construction of three wooden skiffs, a design with a deep history in our region. Not only will campers learn about local maritime history and culture, they’ll also learn to follow design plans, use building tools and apply new skills for building a boat.

Junior Naturalist Activities

When not working on the boats, campers spend time kayaking and participating in junior naturalist activities that highlight different themes and experiences, including ecology, arts, history, conservation and boater safety. Campers will take part in activities around the Maritime Center that will expand their knowledge of and encourage their interaction with the local environment. The wooden skiffs the campers create will be ready for launch in the Chechessee River.
