Summer Camp & Scholarship Program
CGSCIC encourages sailing instruction and participation at all levels.
As a community based organization, we offer sailing education that coincide with seasoned maritime traditions developed on our glorious Biscayne Bay.
In regards to our programs, we also provide scholarship opportunities to young sailors who lack the means to afford and access our pristine and wondrous bay.
THE MARINE SCIENCE ACADEMY AT CGSCIC
This innovative program is a partnership between the Coconut Grove Sailing Club Instructional Center and Miami-Dade County Public Schools division of Life Skills and Special Projects. Middle and High School students from across Miami-Dade County are given an opportunity to participate in a program during the school day which brings them to the Club for classroom and “hands on” experiences in a marine environment. City of Miami students are given preference in class offerings. Thanks to our partnership with MDCPS, special needs students are able to experiencing the beauty of Biscayne Bay. On any given weekday, the Club is being used by students learning to sail access dinghies and paddling Kayaks in the harbor.
