We still have spots available at the Apprenticeshop summer academy in Rockland. Check out the academy description below... Have you ever imagined going on daily adventures in a traditional sailboat, learning about sailing and seamanship and even how to build boats? It's happening this Summer at the Apprenticeshop, where you’ll be the captain of a wooden boat and the master of the shop. Students are invited to participate in different activities that incorporate traditional boatbuilding and seamanship at the Apprenticeshop’s waterfront. A rotating land based / boat based group will be formed having half of the students working in making boat parts for a underway project of a sailing sardine carrier, involved in using wood tools to create objects, and the other half working on seamanship by going out sailing on Rockland’s harbor on one of the A’shops traditional vessels. During the course of the week, students will have specific tasks and will be taking rotating assignments in the shop or in the boat and will be engaged through games being introduced to the maritime vocabulary. At its core, the Apprenticeshop is about inspiring personal growth through craftsmanship, community, and traditions of the sea. Dates: Aug 02- Aug 19th (3 weeks; Monday through Thursday) Time: 12-3 (3 hours) Program: Youth traditional Sailing, Rowing, Seamanship and Boatbuilding Grades: Students going into grades 5-8th Contact Adam Bullard at 207-542-6260 for more information or to sign up.
