Courageous annually serves over 1,000 children, ages 8 to 18, out of three sailing venues in the City of Boston: Charlestown Navy Yard, Jamaica Pond, and Camp Harbor View. At our headquarters on Pier 4 in the Charlestown Navy Yard, we operate a "five-step" summertime sailing school program that takes students from "Learn-to-Sail" through "Instructor-in-Training" programs. Each Step in our curriculum includes sailing instruction, environmental education, and leadership training components. The Charlestown site also hosts two programs that provide free sailing and science programming to Boston Public School students. We operate similar though smaller-scale programs at both Jamaica Pond and Camp Harbor View.
We invite you to browse this site to find out more about our summertime and school-year offerings.
Never been sailing? Get ready for the ultimate adventure! In just one lesson you'll be out on the water. If you like it—which we're sure you will—before long you'll be skippering a boat, racing on a team, or cruising around the harbor islands. If you stick with it, one day you could even be a Courageous instructor! While you're on the water, you're going to learn lots about the environment and get to practice some pretty important life skills, too. From fishing off our pier to overnight island camping trips, you'll be having fun on adventure after adventure, all year long!
