Certified Crew Member: S/V Denis Sullivan Summer Camp

Time to swab the deck, hoist the sails, and set sail on the Great Lakes! Spend at least four days (weather permitting) out on Lake Michigan becoming a part of the crew. In addition to learning the art of seamanship, you’ll get to monitor the weather, study the lake’s food chain, and measure the water’s quality. You’ll see how life was on a 19th century schooner as you get to see firsthand how the S/V Denis Sullivan handles! This workshop includes Middle School and High School Students.
