Midd Students Break World Record for Largest Cardboard Box Fort

Yesterday, members of the Youthful Alliance for Merrymaking (YAM), led by Luke Greenway ‘14.5, broke the world record for the largest cardboard box fort building a structure comprising 1,130 boxes. A group of Harvard students who built a fort with 1,064 boxes held the record previously.

YAM members had been collecting boxes for the past couple weeks in the Bunker, which they used to build the fort yesterday on Battell Beach. They are currently working on a more polished video of the project, but for now take a look at the one above.
