Great Ducky Race & Cardboard Boat Regatta
The 6th Annual Milton & Betty Katz JCC Great Ducky Race and Cardboard Boat Regatta is a fun-filled family day including duck-themed carnival games, live music, a bounce house, cardboard boat regatta and a much-anticipated rubber duck race.
Funds from the event aid in the Katz JCC scholarship program that provides the children and seniors of Atlantic County, as well as the community as a whole, programs and services.
The cardboard boat regatta is a great team building exercise and is a fun and exciting way to help strengthen the relationships among civic groups, offices and organizations designed with businesses, schools, youth groups, groups of friends and families, and non-profit organizations in mind.
The goal of the boat regatta is to build a boat that stays afloat while navigating the waters of the bay, paddling and racing fellow boat builders from Ray Scott’s Dock to the Washington Avenue Pier and back.
A Captain’s Award will be given to the most creative team and boat, a Pride of the Fleet Award will be given to the winner and a Titanic Award for the best and most dramatic sinking of a ship.
Groups can enter the cardboard boat regatta with a one to two crew member boat for $50, a three to five crew member boat for $60 and a six to ten crew member boat for $80.
Sponsors of the Great Ducky Race and Cardboard Boat Regatta receive a free entry into the boat race.
Duck adoptions are available at the Katz JCC Front Desk or by calling Julie at 609-822-116,7 Ext. 159. Ducks are available in a colony of 25 ducks for $100, a flock of 12 ducks for $50, a family of 5 ducks for $20 or a solo duck for $5.
The Katz JCC team will once again begin a cardboard boat building display on Thursday, July 10 from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. in the lobby of the JCC.
