Who should take this course?
Sailors and non-sailors ages 7-12 interested in getting their hands dirty and exploring another angle on sailing and adventure sports. We’ll look into what makes the world tick, move, and grow around us.

How are the classes structured?
Led by Masters of Education candidate and BS Biology graduate Andrea (Porter) Dolan, each day of the STEM Adventure will feature a new lesson element within our week’s theme. Lessons are geared towards hands-on exploration with short classroom periods and team building/games for class cohesion. We’ll have fun, get dirty, and explore the world around WCSC on and off the water.

Do I need sailing skills? What should I bring?
This is a non-sailing class; however, you should come prepared to be in and out of the lake during class, so wearing a swimsuit is a must! Also recommended: towel, change of clothes, sun protection, water shoes, and a backpack to contain the mayhem. All other materials for lessons are provided. PFDs are required when in and on the water, but will be provided for those that do not have one.
