Sea Quest Kids
In two days or less children and young adults from four years old through college age including all special needs kids build a ten foot Sea Quest 100 scow-skiff, paddles, oars, mast, sail, sail rig, and outboard motor bracket, get boating and water safety trained, and become part of an international network of kids that have all built their own boats and have organized ongoing events. The Sea Quest 100 holds over 1,100 pounds and only draws about 3-4 inches of water or less depending on the load.
We have worked with virtually every kind of group that works with kids! Boys and Girls Clubs, all scouting programs, YMCAs, summer camps, schools, churches, yacht clubs, fishing clubs, Big Brothers and Big Sister, Special Olympics and every type of special needs. We have also done corporate team building experiences.
We train the adult leaders of organized groups that work with kids how to cut the parts, how to lead the kids through building boats, and how to do events for the kids after they have the boats. The training sessions are how we raise money for Sea Quest Kids. Sessions include all materials to build two boats and a Sea Quest Kids manual with DVD 1 of “Boating and Water Safety For Kids and Families” 6 DVD series.
Sea Quest Kids work with colleges and universities doing aqua culture programs; seed oyster and clam beds, water quality testing and more; do public speaking to PTAs, town councils, civic associations, United States Power Squadrons, and numerous other groups including testifying about boating and water safety before the US Senate and House of Representatives; do boating and water safety demonstrations; present their boats and activities at boat shows and other public and private special events such as fairs, festivals, and parades; overnight campouts; community service doing waterway clean ups; and more.
Sign up your organization now to invest in a lifetime program and be trained in how to do Sea Quest Kids. Training from one to three days including all of the materials to build two boats is $3,750 all inclusive of travel within a 1,000 mile range. For four to seven days the fee is $5,750. At the end you will have two Sea Quest Kids boats and the beginning of a lifetime of adventure and fun times for the kids in your groups.

Not only do We The Kids broaden and strengthen their understanding of the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence, but they also concentrate on the Articles of Confederation and the Federalist Papers. After all, the Articles of Confederation was the original contract of the 13 Colonies among themselves to organize their interactions together but they also served as the basis for the governance of America.

Come along with us on a fun filled excursion into the true history of America and its founding! You will see everything from the first spy rings that served our Country during the Revolutionary War to the heart rending dedication of our militias and army as they fought under General George Washington and sacrificed everything they had for the sake of freedom and our nation! Experience the depth of meaning of our founding documents and why it is so important to be a Constitutional Republic verses a democracy as we have incorrectly been termed! See the astonishing effect freedom had on society and the formation of business and industry making America into the greatest and most giving nation in the history of the world!

The most life changing impact on the life of a young person or even adults is for them to build their own ten foot Sea Quest 100 scow-skiff and learn how to use it. Since 1989 Advance America Foundation, the education foundation building bridges thru education, we have tried and experienced many different hands on activities for kids and other motivational learning activities and on average by far the number one activity to impact the self image and confidence level of a child or young adult is for them to build their own Sea Quest 100 scow-skiff and learn how to use it. There is not even a close second.
And if you thought building a boat would be mostly a guy activitiy you would be wrong since more than 60% of our boat builders are girls!!!
