Summer Camps

Have Tools, Will Travel

WaterInterested in having Compass Project staff lead a boatbuilding or wood working program at your summer camp, school, or event? Programs can be tailored to your needs, but a typical week-long program would cater to a group of 10 students, and you would keep the project at the end of the week.

Interested in building with your family or coworkers? Contact us for current opportunities to participate in an organized boat building or wood working event or to arrange for a customized program.
