During the first week of camp, campers built two Bevin skiffs at the seaport center.  Students learned the technology of  boat building,  by constructing their skiifs from start to finish. Campers got to use woodworking tools and technology in order to create their skiffs. The 12' skiffs are made from spruce and mahogany.

Michael instructs Daniel, Andrew, Cassie and Derek to set their clamps in order to hold the sides of their boats to dry. Boats are glued together with epoxy resin, and campers had the chance to paint them once they were finished.
