Cardboard Boat Regatta

September 7, 2013

10:00 am – 2:00 pm


A boat out of cardboard and duct tape? You’re kidding, right?  It has to carry at least two people and paddle through the water? You’re nuts!!  But we’re going to do it!   Join the fun at the annual event open only to Girl Scouts who are registered/re-registered by August 31.  In teams of 3-4, girls will construct a sea-worthy vessel made entirely of cardboard and duct tape and race to a soggy finish!  Leaders and families interested in competing should come prepared to build a boat and get wet!   New this year – overnight accommodations are available for troops and/or families on a first-come, first-served basis.  (NOTE:  Current background check for any adult staying overnight is required)
