Registration Information

The 2023 Summer Youth Program lottery is now closed. 

If you wish to enroll your student in the 2023 Summer Youth Program but missed the lottery registration window, please reach out to us at to discuss waitlist or enrollment options. 

Every year Courageous serves 1,000 youth from the Boston area. We are working hard to expand our capacity and have been able to provide substantially more hours of sailing per child in recent years. Still, we receive more applications than we are able to fulfill.

Registration is now closed


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.
