Thumbnail of Pirates project

2020 Summer Program

Pirates were bandits, yes. But they were also sailors who had to know how to maintain and sail a ship. Pirate crews were drawn from many ports and learned to work together. They adopted Codes of rights and rules.

Construct and captain your pirate ship. Sand and seal your hull. Rig your masts and sails. Outfit a crew of loyal sailors. Prepare your ship to sail in any bathtub, pool or creek. Construct a treasure chest and hunt for treasure.

Adventures for at-home when we can’t yet venture far.

(Adult help needed with painting for one afternoon.)
