We are raising money to fund our after-school programming at the Hudson Intermediary School. We just finished another wonderful semester building and designing boats, learning woodworking skills and collaborating with the students at the Hudson Intermediary School.

We need to raise $3000 by January 1st so that we can continue this programming in the spring. Please help us reach this goal by donating today! #givingtuesday

After-school Programming at the Hudson Intermediary School

Check out some of the educational programming we've been up to at the Hudson Intermediary School. Last Spring a group of 6th graders build this wooden punt and launched it at Oakdale (see video!). This Fall, a group of younger students, aged 7-10 have been developing their woodworking skills, learning about boats, buoyancy and hydrodynamics.
