Our After-School Adventure Camp is designed to help your children’s bodies MOVE after a long day of school. At Belle Haven Marina, your child will take part in weather-dependent activities such as learning to sail, kayaking, swimming, and nature walks in an atmosphere where fun, safety, and responsibility are paramount. Children will gain confidence around the water and on land by learning safe sailing/boating skills and how to be responsible stewards of our natural resources.

-Ages 8-15

-Small student-to-instructor ratio of no more than 6:1

-Activities are weather-dependent and may include:

·         Learning to rig and sail a Sunfish sailboat

·         Learning to rig and sail a Flying Scot sailboat

·         Riding on a larger keel sailboat

·         Kayaking and/or canoeing through scenic Dyke Marsh Nature Preserve

·         Swimming in the river (when water quality and temperature allows)

·         Nature walks through Dyke Marsh Wildlife Preserve

·         Learning to tie knots used in rigging

 

Courses are offered weekly in the fall through October 31, or earlier if the water or air temperatures necessitate. Classes will run from 4 (with late arrivals up to 4:15 p.m.) to 7 p.m. You may sign up for one week or multiple weeks at a time.
