Tuesdays & Thursdays
February 7th – May 4th
At the start of each year the students ask “When will we be finished?”
Months later when they launch a boat they created themselves, they experience first hand how a long term investment in a physical process, can culminate into something of value. If you are looking for the perfect after-school activity for the hands-on learner, YouthBoat may be just the thing!
Students ages 11-17 work alongside shipwrights to follow building plans, use tools and materials, and put STEM skills to work as they build a boat in the school’s wood shop under the guidance of skilled shipwrights and craftspeople. YouthBoat is designed to empower youth from diverse backgrounds, build character, and foster teamwork through the traditional craft of wooden boatbuilding and on-the-water activities.
Staff and volunteers of the Hudson River Maritime Museum's Wooden Boat School and Sailing & Rowing School.
