What is Spirit of America?
Tailored to Middle School Students: The Spirit of America is an innovative year round opportunity and educational experience for middle school aged students, 11-15 years of age, that combines a summer-camp atmosphere with classroom discipline. The curriculum includes National Education and Physical Education Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and includes STEM Components.
Hands-on Water Time: A minimum of five hours is spent in each of the disciplines; sail, paddle and power. Further, participants participate in hands on education and gain exposure to professional opportunities during the educational activities on board a USCG or local and state law enforcement agency large vessel.
To register your child for the course, please fill out the Spirit of America application form and pay the $100 tuition fee for your chosen course week. We can receive forms either through the mail or electronically.
This year, SCC will run three Spirit of America sessions:

We are returning to our traditional format of teaching the boating safety course within the 5-day session, and will not require attendance at an earlier weekend class.
