Stations include the following: * Rangefinder *Davit Lift *Make-a-boat *Knots *Robotic game etc. Training and time to practice will be provided in all activities.

Qualifications: Must be comfortable leading students of various ages from 5 th grade on up, in groups of 15 to 20. Enthusiasm, a positive attitude, flexibility, a passion for education, as well as a willingness to learn and an ability to physically navigate the ship are all requirements for this position. The ship has numerous ladders and participants will need to be comfortable spending time on their feet. Crew will need to be available on weekdays - most likely Mondays and Wednesdays.
