For ages 11 and through 14(ish).
The Intermediate program builds on what students learn in the beginning program, introducing new skills and new tools. Kids in this program will spend half their time cycling through stations, similar to the structure of the beginning program, but with more challenging projects. The other half of the time will be devoted to working on in-depth woodworking projects, such as building a workbench or a shipwright half hull.
Mixed Mornings: We have a new program structure for participants in our Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced Boat Building programs. Each kid will still come two days a week. One of those days will in their specific age/skill level group (Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced – the levels are described below), but the other day will be mix of all ages!
There are a few reasons for this change. First, it will allow for parents to have more choice in the schedule, making it easier to coordinate with other activities on the island (like LCYC). Most importantly, these multi-level mixed mornings allow kids to teach kids. We want to promote peer teaching, where students really learn to master skills and share knowledge by working together and guiding each other.
