Youth Extreme Recreation Adventure: Call of the Sea Cruise
Saturday, September 28 from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm
During the 2019 and 2020 school years, the LightHouse Youth Program will be hosting monthly extreme recreation activities and adventures for youth that are blind or have low vision. Those that sign up for these monthly outings will have opportunities to make new friends, meet mentors and develop life skills that will help them be successful in other aspects of life - all while enjoying the wonderful recreation options that the Bay Area and surrounding areas have to offer.
The September outing will have youth that are blind or low vision and their immediate families join students from the LightHouse Adult programs and the experienced crew from Call of the Sea for a day-long sailing adventure and potluck. Students of all ages will be participating in activities that will allow them to learn about our local waters and wildlife as well as the maritime culture and tradition. Between raising the sails and scraping the bottom of the bay students and crew will have plenty of time to make friends and enjoy the day of sailing.
