Float Your Boat

Float Your Boat

Gather your team and come join our Float your Boat event!  Think outside the box to build and race the best boat you can build with cardboard and duct tape and, most of all, have fun!

We believe this event provides an opportunity for the Y and the community to strengthen relationships through quality time spent together enjoying a fun, wholesome activity.


  • All ages are welcome to participate.
  • Materials provided include cardboard, duct tape, box cutters, life jackets, and oars.
  • You are welcome to bring additional cardboard if you would like.
  • Boats are to be constructed with cardboard and duct tape only.
  • Boats will be built onsite from 9am-11:30am.
  • The races will begin at 11:30am.
  • Each team chooses who and how many will race their boat across the pool.  For safety reasons, children 4 and under may not participate in the race portion of this event.
  • The team with the fastest time wins!
