CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: We believe every young person deserves the chance to take part in an experience that will enable them to succeed. The Sea School experience is life-changing for all youth, but particularly important in the lives of young people who cannot easily afford such opportunities. This is why it is so important that the Sea School program is accessible to youth from all backgrounds. The Sea School will try not to turn youth away for financial reasons; we are committed to making it possible for each individual to participate no matter what they can afford.

This takes time and a great deal of work, however. If you are a young person or a family in need of assistance please contact us early.

Great for team building or sightseeing! Sail out of historic Lunenburg Harbour. We offer a 3 or a 6 hour day sail for 6 up to 12 participants. Sessions are tailored for organization’s needs.
