Learn how to sail and explore nature on the Bronx River! During this two-week program, participants will learn the basics of sailing and discover the wonders of the river in our back yard. No sailing 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, will have life jackets on at all times while on or near the water, and follow strict COVID-19 health and safety guidelines.

The Academy is free for rising 6th through 9th graders.
