Program areas at Rocking the Boat

Youth development program: Rocking the Boat's youth development program is split into three tracks - wooden Boat building, bronx river restoration, sailing - and two levels - student and apprentice - but united through a shared focus on giving high school students the opportunity to learn by doing practical work that produces tangible results.
Public programs: Rocking the Boat's public programs expose a broader audience to its work. the on-water classroom introduces the joy of rowing and the beauty and ecological diversity of the bronx river to elementary, middle, and high school students throughout the school year, and offers both professional development for teachers and team building programs for a wide range of adult groups. During the summer, sailing and nature camp - an environmental education program with a strong emphasis on teambuilding - and sailing camp, introduces participants to rowing and sailing, and allows them to spend a portion of their summer involved in (continued on schedule o)outdoor activities that enhance their capacity and think critically and problem solve collaboratively, while building physical fitness and fostering environmental stewardship. On an even larger scale, community birding, rowing, and sailing invites the general public to birdwatch and go for a free row or sail, guided by Rocking the Boat program assistants, on saturday and sunday afternoons from memorial day to labor day.
