Free Sailing will start July 8 with a kick off BBQ!

“The CISF program is great because it’s project-based learning. Its real life. It hits all the skills we want to develop in our students: collaboration, critical thinking, creation, and communication. Because the students love making, they have fun while learning. The Makerspace hums with activity all afternoon. And the units themselves teach students about water and their physical space, and caring for their environment. As an Island community, I can’t think of a more authentic STEM experience for our students.” – Lisa Casey, LMS, School Librarian, 2019

“CISF provides inspiring project-based learning that nurtures creativity, problem-solving, risk-taking, personal accomplishment, collaboration and “aha” moments” – Jane Mitchell, Kindergarten Teacher, Jamestown Melrose School, 2019

“This camp changed my perspective about sailing and how we need to protect the ocean. I now LOVE sailing and want to do it whenever I have the opportunity.” — Mason, Camper

“CISF is a unique organization with a fabulous mission. It appeals to a wide range of abilities and interests, community-centered. It feels good to send your kids here.” — Parent

“My daughter gets to ‘mess about in boats’ but still learn about the environment. She loves it!” — Parent

“This is the only camp she has ever asked to return to!” — Parent

“The combination of sailing, marine biology, and art was perfect for both of my kids.” — Parent

“The Sea Adventure Staff are incredible! They are amazing with kids, fun, caring, & responsible.” — Parent

“It’s people like you and the foundation, who really took the time to give children in this community a chance to try something that we wouldn’t normally be able to experience due to cost, even though we live on the water.” – Parent

“My daughter still talks about her time at Sea Adventure camp from last year and can’t wait to go back. I can’t recommend it more than I already do to kids/families that haven’t attended- it’s such a great experience. Keep up the outstanding work.” – Jamestown First Grade School Teacher, 2019
