Build a boat with a friend or a relativeClass prices are based on the boat you are building. If you want to build your boat with a friend, we still only charge the single student price. This is also an ideal way to build a boat with a younger relative, daughter, son, niece, nephew, grandson, granddaughter. Enjoy your time together and come away with a finished boat. This is a good way to build a boat with a young person who would enjoy taking part in the building process but still needs your help to finish a boat.
Build a boat or paddle with your scout troopIf your troop is involved with on the water activities, building the playboat would be an ideal way to both learn building skills and end up with a boat that you can use to learn paddling skills.
