There will even be visits from an aquatic animal specialist to introduce students to the creatures that live in Jamaica Pond.

Course Description:

(01/29/15 Note: At this time, program details have not been finalized. Thank you for your patience as we work to make the 2015 program possible!)

This five-week long program is a great way to introduce your child to Boston's waterways. The program is designed to build students' confidence around water, knowledge of water and boating safety, and appreciation of the natural environment.

As part of our Summer Sailing School, we operate two other summer programs: the Summer Learning Project (SLP) and SwimSailScience (SSS). Both programs specifically target Boston Public School students identified as being at risk for summer learning loss. The students in these programs receive transportation, two meals each day, and lessons in swimming, sailing, and science, all at no cost to their families. No prior sailing or swimming experience is necessary for students to attend. Unlike our "Step" programs, students must be referred by their schools in order to register. Past Boston Public School partners for the Summer Learning Project have included the Harvard-Kent, Warren-Prescott, Adams, Haley, and Young Achievers.

Note: Registration for the 2015 Summer Learning Project is not open to the general public. Registration for the 2015 Swim Sail Science program will be conducted at select Boston Publics Schools. Please return to this website in late February 2015 for more information on which schools we will be working with.
