This sort of thing should be everywhere…
Starting in 2021, we are excited to announce this initiative to provide 10 campers a 100% fully paid and supported summer camp experience of up to 4 weeks. Through this initiative we aim to create new summer opportunities and recreation options for kids who come from diverse communities and families.
Importantly, this opportunity does not end after this summer! The Community Sailing Center promises to provide full scholarship support participants over the next 4 years who decide to continue their growth as sailors. This pathway goes from learning to sail, to racing in high school, to becoming a junior instructor.
The Community Sailing Center is a community-based nonprofit organization providing access, education, and recreation on Lake Champlain for almost 8,000 people annually. We engage our community with the lake through a wide range of educational and recreational programs that extend an open invitation to everyone regardless of age, gender, race, physical ability, or the means to pay.
