Learn how to sail and explore nature on the Bronx River! During this full-day, three-week, two-session program, participants will learn the basics of sailing and discover both the rich natural environment of the river in our backyard as well as some of the threats to its long-term health. No sailing or environmental experience is necessary, just an openness to learn!

Safety is the foundation of all our programming. Students will be supervised by US Sailing-certified instructors, and will have US Coast Guard approved life jackets on at all times while on or near the water. Children with all swim abilities are welcome to participate.
