Ten participants build 17’ sea kayaks at the museum and then embark on a 10-day Lake Champlain voyage from Whitehall NY to Burlington VT in the boats they built . Trip leaders will be responsible for the group for the 5-week session. The boatbuilding portion is a 5-day a week day-program followed by a 10-day trip on Lake Champlain.  Check out this web site for program information.   http://www.lcmm.org/education/champlain_discovery.htm
