Have you heard about our RS Quests? In June, the CBC will welcome six new sailboats to our fleet. The RS Quest provides a stable learning environment for youth just beginning the sport of sailing, while also providing growth opportunity for those youth sailors ready to move on to intermediate skill development.
Give your child the gift of learning on a RS Quest this summer!

After-School Programs at the CBC

For youth ages 9-14

Our spring and fall after-school programs offer youth participants the chance to supplement their boating skills in preparation for, or in continuation after, the summer boating season.

Programs run twice a week for six consecutive weeks.

All participants must pass a swimming test on the first day. The swimming test consists of swimming in a wetsuit without a life jacket for 50 meters and a 3 minute water treading test.

The Community Boating Center will provide life jackets and wetsuits. We also have a limited number of water shoes to loan out.

Participants should come each day with:

  • swimsuit
  • towel
  • water/water bottle
  • snacks
  • dry clothes
  • warm clothes
  • rain gear
  • water shoes (tennis shoes are ok)
  • sunscreen

Don't wait for summer to get your child out on the water, sign them up for our After-School Sail & Paddlesports camp and help them prepare for a summer of boating! This camp is geared toward youth who would like to learn the basics of sailing, kayaking, and paddleboarding, as well as toward youth who already have the basics down, but who would like to refresh their existing skills before the summer months. In this multi-week camp, participants not only learn boating basics, but also make new friends, work as a team, build self confidence, and learn how to safely recreate on Bellingham Bay.

All Community Boating Center camps are focused on skill-building, community engagement, team and leadership growth, confidence building, safety awareness, and fun. Each of our camps are led by CPR/First Aid/AED certified instructors who have extensive boating and youth leading experience.

In this multi-week camp, participants not only learn boating basics, but also make new friends, work as a team, build self confidence, and learn how to safely recreate on Bellingham Bay.
