Head to Sea with Voyage Camp on the Schooner Seaward
March 8, 2011Posted by pamela |
Spend some time at sea this summer! Call of the Sea, an educational non-profit based in Sausalito, is offering a Voyage Camp designed for students ages 12–18 to take part in three- and five-day summer sea voyages to explore the waters of the San Francisco Bay and Beyond!
These three-and five-day overnight seagoing adventures challenge and teach teenagers the ways of the ocean. Under the guidance of a professional captain and crew, students learn to sail a classic sailing vessel as a team. Dependent on weather, wind and tide instead of social pressures and electronic entertainment, they gain an appreciation and respect for the ocean environment. All participants will learn steering, navigating, standing watch, and helping in the galley as students become one with the rhythm of a ship at sea.
The summer session Three-day Voyage Seaward programs take place July 26–28 and August 10–12 and the Five-day Voyage Seaward program takes place June 28–July 2. For more information, please visit www.callofthesea.org or to register by calling (415) 331-3214.
