When you give to the Community Boating Center’s Annual Fund, you are sharing our belief in the power of water. It has the power to heal, teach, and motivate. It allows us to daydream, reflect and imagine. It provokes harmony, compassion, and awe. CBC provides a sanctuary for children, regardless of means, to enjoy the outdoors, and harness the power of the water in a SAFE and FUN environment where they excel as individuals and as part of our community.
During the past year, CBC’s year-round programming has continued to expand into more schools. We have connected thousands of area youth to the water through a wide variety of programs that include: sailing, rowing, kayaking, boat building, underwater remote operated vehicle design and construction, windmill blade design and construction, water quality monitoring, marine debris cleanup, and our ocean stewardship STEM program. With YOUR help, more than eighty percent (80%) of the children enrolled in CBC’s 2017 Summer Youth Sailing Program, a program they could not have otherwise afforded, attended free of charge.
