Britannia Shipyard Boatbuilders School Program Fieldtrip


Field trip information: 

This is a facilitated 90 minute in-person field trip experience at the Britannia Shipyards in Steveston.
In this program, students will: 


  • explore the Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site to learn about the history of boatbuilding and its importance in Steveston.
  • explore the different steps to build a boat by participating in a tool scavenger hunt, a caulking demonstration, and more maritime-themed activities.
  • These steps will then be applied to a boatbuilding activity, with each student making their own small wooden boat to bring home.
  • The program will be adapted to accommodate children in various age groups and our group may be split into two groups depending on the number who register.
