Cardboard Boat Building
Think big! These cardboard boats aren't models. They are big enough for youth to fit in. Working in teams, they spend several days and use a LOT of duct tape to build a lake-worthy craft. Then they paddle out on the lake (wearing a life vest and tied to an instructor) to see how long their boat stays afloat.

When youth need a break from building, we'll have nature walks down the creek, playground time, fishing, and swimming.

This program is combined with Lansing Rural Youth Services. If you live in Lansing, please sign up through Lansing's program if there is space available. This will leave spots open for Danby residents.

Danby Youth Program offers free after school and summer programs open to elementary (grades 4-5) and middle school aged youth of Tompkins County, with priority given to Danby Youth. These programs are offered through a partnership between the Town of Danby and Rural Youth Services, 4-H of Cornell Cooperative Extension Tompkins County
