Registration Information

2024 Summer Youth Program lottery registration is closed. The registration runs from February 1 - 15 yearly.

Every year, close to 400 youth from the Boston area enjoy a summer of learning, fun, and sailing in Courageous's programs in Charlestown and at Jamaica Pond. While we've been able to increase the number of spots available over the past few years, we still don't have room for everybody who would like to get involved. To make sure our registration process is fair, we use a lottery system, and we invite you to join!

If you wish to enroll your student in the 2024 Summer Youth Program or would like to receive notifications when the yearly Lottery opens and closes, please sign up below.

Lottery Information

Registration is lottery-based and there is no advantage to submitting a registration form early in the registration period. We have moved away from a first-come-first-served system in an effort to create a more equitable system. All lottery registration forms received will be processed in the following order of priority: (1) returning students, (2) siblings of returning students, and finally (3) new students who have no siblings in the program.

Please note that registration for our Swim Sail Science program is run by our school partners, and you cannot sign up for Swim Sail Science through this Lottery.

Fee & Scholarship Information

Note: We remain committed to providing access to our program to students regardless of their ability to pay and understand that recent years have caused economic hardship for many. If your income or financial situation puts you in a fee bracket that you can’t afford, please contact us at and we will work with you so that your children will be able to attend.
