The Herreshoff Marine Museum offers a unique and interactive Summer Camp for youth 7-15. There are 9 weekly sessions during the summer. The Herreshoff Seamanship Program teaches the art of seamanship and the principles of sailing. Our classes have a recreational sailing focus with an emphasis on the design, beauty, and unique features of these classic vessels.
Classes are taught on our Herreshoff 12 1/2s – 16-foot antique wooden sloops, Sea Sprite 23s, Hobie Cats and Bic O’pens, and a variety of small keelboats on Narragansett Bay. Class sizes are limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Scholarships and sibling discounts available. The Museum also offers spring and fall after-school classes for children and adult sailing lessons.
