After-School

Our after-school format offers great opportunities for fun and growth in a fresh-air environment. NEW individual sign-ups allow students to join without having to register through a school group.

COVID-19 Update

We are currently accepting applications for our after-school programs.
There has never been a more important time to offer youth healthy, outdoor activities to relieve stress, socialize, and provide much-needed fun, learning structure and exercise. Sailing and paddling are inherently social-distancing. Enhanced with new rules and procedures based upon best practices, we are open again in 2021 for another great season under the guidance and approval of our greatly appreciated state and local leadership.

NEW – Please Bring:
– Good Health – Don’t come if you are sick: COVID-19 Screening Tool
– Lifejacket (limited, assigned PFDs available): West Marine, MTI Lifejackets
– Backpack or duffel (labeled with name)
– Cloth face mask (and a spare!) – worn at drop-off/pick-up & restrooms:
– Hand sanitizer
– Water bottle (filled with water)
– Sunscreen (not to be shared)
– Snack (all trash is pack-in/pack-out)
– Closed-toe shoes (no bare feet or flip-flops)

NEW – Inclement Weather:
We all know it’s not easy running a youth program this year (or being a parent/guardian) – but we are thrilled to be able to get your children out of the house and offer an exciting outdoor experience. When the sun is shining (or mostly shining) sailing and paddling in the Ocean State is hard to beat. However, days that are forecast to be all-day storm events can be challenging for our indoor capacity. If you are in a position to keep your child home on bad weather days (forecast and communicated by us at least a day ahead) we would appreciate your flexibility in helping us reduce the number of youth on-site that day. We understand this is not ideal, and may not be possible for some families, but appreciate your help and understanding.

COVID-19 Considerations
Our detailed plan includes but is not limited to: Health screenings and hand washing, cloth masks, regular disinfection of all surfaces, social distancing, maximizing time outdoors, restricting mixing of groups and visitors, staggering drop-offs and pickups, limiting sharing of materials and disinfecting them in between use, and small cohorts of youth engaged in staggered, engaging outdoor activities. View our COVID-19 Control Plan.

Please share our many healthy, outdoor youth sailing and paddling camps and lesson opportunities with your friends, neighbors, and colleagues with kids (and adults) looking to get outside, have fun, and enjoy an Ocean State adventure right in your own backyard.

How To Sign-Up
Designed for student comfort and flexibility, our multiple sessions and personal skill evaluations allow your child to jump right in or sign-up with friends of any skill level, in any session, all season long.
