Registration for Summer 2019 is open!


Payment Policy
Full payment is expected at the time of registration. We are not able to place your child’s name on the sign-up list without this payment. If for some reason you have a change of plans and your child cannot attend a reserved time slot, our policy is that we will refund one half of the amount of registered weeks if we receive notice up to 60 days prior to the start date. Refunds with notice less than 30 days of the start date are non-refundable. To register please click the Register Online box to the right. "Register Online"

What to Bring

  • Nutritious snacks and drinking water (in plastic bottle)
  • US Coast Guard approved life vest with whistle attached
  • Rain gear EVERY DAY, also a sweatshirt and/or light jacket
  • A complete change of clothing
  • Sunscreen, sunglasses, and a towel

If your child should have an accident, however small, he/she should inform their instructor, who will apply first aid if required (all staff holds CPR/First Aid Certification) and make decisions regarding further medical care at that time based on the information provided on the medical form. We will seek to contact you through the phone numbers you have given us. Children requiring the care of a doctor will be taken to a medical facility in Southwest Harbor that has been designated on the child's medical information form. Please sign and return the medical form with the registration. Children without a signed medical form will not be allowed to participate.

Lost and Found
Lost articles of clothing or other belongings will be kept until Friday of the next week. Please label all of your child's clothing.

Parking and Drop-offs
Do all drop-offs and pick-ups at the FRONT SIDE of our facility on Clark Point Road. We have six designated parking spaces in front. There is NO short term parking at the back parking area of Southwest Boat. We are tenants at our facility and have been asked to enforce this policy.
