Registration Information

The 2024 Summer Youth Program lottery will be open from February 1 - 15. 

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.

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

Registration opens in February

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.

We are still finalizing our prices for Summer 2024. Please review our 2023 fees below for an idea of our prices, fee structures, and scholarship policies.
