FOUNDATION PROGRAMS benefit under-served elementary and middle school children. Partnering with Stamford Public Schools and community centers, we offer Young Mariners after school program and Blue Water Bound summer camp. Both use swimming and sailing as hands on ways to provide math, science & social studies enrichment and key life skills.
- Children are admitted to Young Mariners through participating schools: Hart, KT Murphy, Rogers, Stark, Springdale and Toquam, as well as the Yerwood Center.
- Blue Water Bound summer sailing camp is a 5 week program that Young Mariners can attend for 3-5 years. Kids spend 1/2 day sailing and 1/2 day in class related to sailing.
- Both address achievement gap and summer learning loss.
