CCMM provides boat building classes several times a year for local students and at-risk youth in partnership HYCC and Crossroads for Kids (Boston).
Truro Central Elementary School builds a boat every fall as a part of their STEM Curriculum. Our boat building program integrates STEM subjects by way hands-on learning. Wouldn't you have liked to build a boat class when you were in school? We offer inter-generational learning with our volunteers and mentors. While learning science and math, students also gain communication skills, self-esteem, and a sense of accomplishment.
Classes are established after the minimum number of participants has been reached. A projected date for the next session has not yet been established. We encourage those who wish to participate in a future class to sign up on the online form.
Triumph, a 45' Pete Culler designed leeboard, gaff rigged, Sharpie Ketch, was built by Captain Jim Melcher in the 1960's where she spent her early years enchanting campers on Pleasant Bay. Now weathered and in need of repair, she will spend the winter visiting the museum's Boatyard Apprentice School, providing students with the most valued learning tool; hands on experience.
Donations in support of her extensive restoration are welcome
