BOATING ON THE BAY FOR HOMESCHOOLERS

BCSC is offering a 6-day sailing course for Home School Students on Thursdays, beginning on Thursday, September 9th. The course is ONLY being offered to those students that attended the Spring 2021 Home School course at BCSC.

There will be a refresher session on all the skills that we learned in the Spring Program. The course will then focus on giving the students the time in boats, on the water, to practice those skills. Individual student needs and competency will be assessed so that we can tailor their experience and make the most of practicing learned skills and learning appropriate new skills.

Depending on individual requests and the number of students registering for this course, kayaking will also be offered.
