Dreaming of a life at sea? Well, young sailors now have the opportunity to explore the lives of long ago crew members called powder monkeys. Powder monkeys were young boys who bravely served aboard ships during the exciting Age of Sail. In this engaged adventure, young poweder monkeys will try their hand at the art of knot tying, following ship commands, and creating their own powder monkey craft.
