Learn basic woodworking skills in a boat building workshop during this week-long camp.  Students will build a model sail boat, whose hull they will shape based on traditional boats of their choice. Students will have the chance to paint their boats, round their spars, and rig their boats for sail. On the last day of camp, the students will host a mini regatta for their families on the Merrimack River.   Students in the program will also get the opportunity to closely observe boat building practices at Lowell’s Boat Shop. Each student will be bringing home their completed model.

*A minimum of 4 students are required to run this class. Should there be fewer than four students, Lowell’s Boat Shop reserves the right to cancel the class at any time for a full refund.
