This Saturday we hosted a Halloween-themed Open House at the JP boathouse for Summer Youth Program students, families, and staff.

It was a gorgeous day on the pond with bright sunshine, a strong breeze, and beautiful autumn colors.

Thank you to the JP boathouse staff, the excellent instructors who took us sailing, and to the families and young sailors who joined us!

From now until the Summer Youth Program officially begins in June, we will be hosting many events from career building skills for our Instructors in Training to family activities in communities around Boston to fundraising events to help us continue to offer great summer programming. Keep an eye out for our e-mails, Facebook and blog posts, Tweets advertising for more Open Houses and other Summer Youth Program events in the upcoming months.
