Build a Duct Tape Kayak STEM Camp
The “Build a Duct Tape Kayak” STEM camp challenges students to turn a few rolls of ordinary duct tape into an extraordinary kayaking experience! Participants come together as a team to construct a duct tape kayak during the first half of the camp under the guidance of our staff “Duct Tape Masters.” Then they’ll get the chance to take their creation to the water where they will participate in a variety of on-the-water challenges while paddling the kayak that they just built. This is an empowering experience for students who enjoy building things and playing outside!
