The fee for Junior Program membership is on a sliding scale based on household income, and ranges from $1 – $300 for the entire summer; all classes included in this fee. Families can find out if they qualify for an income based reduced fee by filling out our form online during the sign up process. A fee within our sliding scale will be generated immediately for those who qualify.
Once you purchase a junior membership, you will be eligible to sign your child up for classes. The first round of classes will open on March 1st at Noon online. The second round of classes will open on May 1st, at Noon online. Classes will fill quickly! If you want to have options when choosing a date and time, or if you are trying to sign a child up with a sibling or friend it is recommended that you are online at the time of open to sign up your child. Please note, because spots in classes are limited, we cannot guarantee enrollment in class each week.
Beginners should be signed up for the first level, the Learn to Sail class. This is a five day (M – F) 3 hour class, where youth will become oriented with our program, and begin to learn to sail our beginner sailboat on their own. If you want to sign your child up for two weeks of sailing you can also sign them up for the 2nd class, the Mercury I class, but their Mercury 1 class must occur after they have taken Learn to Sail. Mercury I, however, is much harder to pass, and many sailors take it multiple times. At the end of Mercury I if your child wishes to continue they can either be signed up for Mercury II (if he/she passed) or Mercury I again (if he/she did not pass).
