Rocking the Boat offers unique year-round education and outreach programs for school, camp and other community groups. Groups explore the Bronx River ecosystem, learn new skills and practice teamwork through active engagement with the natural world, science explorations and rowing.

Ranging in length from a single two-hour session to weekly three-hour sessions throughout the year, On-Water Classroom programs augment traditional classroom learning with fun, hands-on experiences. Skilled educators work individually with each group to provide rich experiences for all.
