Boat Launch

Come Celebrate Our Annual Boat Launch!

After months of hard work, BoatWorks participants are proud to showcase their handcrafted boats and take them for a test run on the water. Your attendance and participation in the annual boat launch encourages and empowers them. This year, students will be raffling off a stand up paddle board to support their build projects. By purchasing a raffle ticket, you’ll ensure the BoatWorks program can continue educating the youth of Camden each year.


In late spring or early summer each year—after months of toil, sweat, sawdust, and epoxy—Urban BoatWorks concludes the build season with a launch celebration. Students, families, staff, and volunteers attend the annual event to enjoy the fruits of eight months of long, arduous labor. Before launching the BoatWorks fleet—both new and old boats—past and current participants speak to the importance of patience, dedication, and teamwork, and receive a blessing on their handcrafted vessels.
