2022 Summer Camps and Classes

The Center for Wooden Boats youth programs promote Northwest maritime heritage through education, interpretation, and hands-on experience in building, maintaining and using historic small craft. Our youth-focused sailing, woodworking, internship, and group field trip programs support children’s development in teamwork, personal growth, creativity, and respect for the natural environment. Our programs are hands-on and fun! We believe in experiential education through practical lived experiences. CWB is also committed to making our programs and shared maritime history accessible to all.  We have numerous scholarships available and work with many partners to reduce barriers for those trying to get on the water or in the shop no matter their background.
