Youthboat | Kids Out and About Hudson Valley

Youthboat

YouthBoat is an afterschool program for teenagers, ages 14-18. It is held on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3 -5 p.m., starting on January 29, 2019 and ending on May 30. YouthBoat is designed to empower youth, build character and foster teamwork through the traditional craft of wooden boatbuilding and on-the-water activities. Students must register in advance for the program as spaces are limited. This program builds on skills from one week to the next so it is important to attend all sessions.

​YouthBoat is designed to empower youth, build character and foster teamwork through the traditional craft of wooden boatbuilding and on-the-water activities. At the Riverport Wooden Boat School, students from diverse backgrounds work alongside skilled shipwrights and craftspeople. Through the boatbuilding process, students put STEM skills to work as they follow building plans, use specialized tools and materials, and solve problems. YouthBoat is offered in two programs - one daytime program with Ulster BOCES students, the other an after-school program open to Hudson Valley high school students. HRMM has partnered with Kingston High School to offer high school course credit for this program. Students must provide their own transportation and must complete an application and interview process before being accepted into the program.
