The Cape Cod Maritime Museum’s ‘Young Mariner Program’ is a multidisciplinary course designed to introduce young people to maritime culture, creatures, and science in a hands-on manner.
This program takes place during the summer season for grades 4-7.
Each session is one week, Mon-Thurs. 9am-12pm for up to 12 children.
Activities take place at the museum, and on board Cape Cod Maritime Museum vessels, a Dyer 29, ADVENTURE and if conditions are favorable, our Crosby catboat, SARAH.​
While aboard ADVENTURE, participants will travel around Lewis Bay, learning all about local marine biology and specimen collection, navigation and seamanship, and about the area's history. Participants will also have the chance to learn the basics of sailing.Back on land, participants will try their hand at boat building, reading navigational charts, examining their specimens under a microscope, and learn a bit about the history of boats.

Available for children grades 6-8 who live in the Town of Barnstable, these hands-on workshops are led by dedicated and skilled CCMM volunteers. Working as a team, participants will construct a 12 foot traditional rowing skiff from a standardized boat building kit.

Throughout the building process, kids will improve and develop critical math and woodworking skills as they embark on a journey of fun, talent-building and future "work-readiness" with their peers and adult mentors.
The Program's workshops will be held each Saturday at 9:30am to 12:00pm, from October through December, and every participant will experience the satisfaction and pride of learning how to complete the construction of a seaworthy small boat!

In the Fall of 2018, the Museum welcomed our newest historic boat to our permanent collection. This is an original surfboat used by the US Lifesaving Service Station along the outer Cape coast. Staff and volunteers will be restoring the surfboat in order to complete our collection of historic boats of Cape Cod. The surfboat is a 24 1/2 Race Point surfboat and was donated to the museum by the Cape Cod National Seashore. Visitors are welcome to watch the restoration project and engage in conversations with our boat restoration experts.
