The Lewes Historical Society wooden boat build volunteer crew is hosting 12 campers ages 13-15 from Tyler’s Camp in its second annual boat building event.
Campers — four of whom are returning from 2017 — will work with hand tools to construct 12-foot-long operational Bevin Skiff.
Campers have undergone training by volunteers with more than 25 years of boat building experience. Construction will take place at the 1884 U.S. Life Saving Station, alongside the Lightship Overfalls, at Canalfront Park, 211 Front St., Lewes.
The general public is welcomed to come by daily between 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. through Aug. 10 to witness the vessels be transformed from piles of wood into operational watercraft, under the guidance of knowledgeable volunteers and enthusiastic children.
Attendance is encouraged after 1:30 p.m. Aug. 10 when three completed vessels will be launched in the Lewes Canal.
