NESS Summer Camp Registration Opens Feb 1

Stonington, CT – New England Science & Sailing Foundation (NESS) will open registration for their 2018 Summer Camp on Thursday, February 1. NESS summer programs run Mondays through Fridays for 10 weeks (June 25 - August 31). The half-day and full-day programs are open to students ages 4-17 and located in Stonington, CT.

NESS, a nationally-recognized and award-winning ocean adventure STEM education nonprofit, provides students of all ages with year-round programming that includes marine science, sailing, powerboating, and adventure sports. NESS's summer programs offer a unique combination of on-the-water and in-the-classroom lessons intended to spark curiosity, enhance learning, and encourage students to step out of their comfort zones. Summer programs include courses in sailing, marine science, adventure sports, and powerboating.

The nonprofit's adventure sports offerings for ages 9-17 include surfing, fishing, powerboating, kayaking, geocaching & navigation, and more. This year there will be even more hybrid adventure sports classes in which students can experience a combination of different sports within one class.

The nonprofit will continue to offer sailing classes for students ages 6-16 with courses that vary in length from one to eight weeks. As with this year's adventure sports classes, the sailing classes will feature more combination classes, giving students the opportunity to sail different types of sailboats during their week-long class. 

The nonprofit also offers a variety of marine science courses for students ages 4-15. NESS announced this year that they have collaborated with the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center and Project Oceanology on a few courses.
