CB YOUTH PROGRAMMING
SPECIAL 2020 CB PROGRAMS for YOUTH:
Given the very unusual pandemic circumstances this year and the resulting significant changes we had to make to our regular daytime weekly camp programs, we’ve the added the following weekday evening and weekend class offerings exclusively for kids that are part of a Community Boating Family Membership (see “CB Family Plans” in this section of our website for membership details). Please note that for 2020, students in the programs below will be sailing singlehanded (except in the case where there are 2 from the same household, enabling doublehanded sailing). In order to attend, participants must reside in the Finger Lakes region for a minimum of 14 days, COVID-19 symptom free, before coming to SBJSA premises.
All of the offerings below require advance registration via the link button under each course description, along with a call to our Program Director (315-483-8883) to firm up a mutually workable schedule between you and our available instructor:
