Here, wooden boats are our medium to bring people together and facilitate enriching experiences. We provide access without barriers in a respectful, inclusive gathering place at the water's edge. Entry is free, and many programs offer grant-funded "pay what you can" financial support.
CWB changes lives by:
-Empowering kids with opportunities to build confidence and self-reliance at the helm of their own vessel.
-Challenging under-served youth with opportunities to join, contribute and take on responsibilities.
-Opening up minds to the possibilities of water-based recreation and vocation.
-Strengthening society by connecting diverse groups of people around a common sense of purpose: to sustain the community, its boats, and the enriching experiences they enable.
