Oxnard, CA, February 15, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Since 2007, the American Tall Ship Institute (ATSI) has grown its organization by working with groups. Scout troops, church groups, and school groups have gone out sailing to the Channels Islands and stayed on board the tallship, Bill of Rights. For the first time ever, tickets can be purchased for a child's week aboard the tallship, Bill of Rights, without booking the entire ship with a group. Space is limited, and are sold first come, first serve.
While ATSI does educates youth of all ages, these camps are designed for ages 9-14. Older youth may be selected to join our group as camp counselors in training (CIT).
EXTREME Explorers 6 Day Camp
This exploratory and fun filled week starts with a full day sail transit aboard the tallship, Bill of Rights, to Santa Cruz Island in the Channel Islands National Park. Adventures included are at least 3 days of living aboard a tallship, 2 days of camping, night sailing, snorkeling ship wrecks, kayaking, and exploring the Island. Campers will learn sailing and marine sciences while on board the ship, and learn geology and archaeology while exploring the Island. This is an opportunity learn about the wildlife that can only be found on this island, the effects of human habitation, the importance of conservation, and have a series of adventures that are likely to affect your child positively for life.
This week is packed full of so much learning and fun, one could experience it several times over and never find a dull moment. ATSI is excited to help youth discover this amazing place in our own backyard.
Camps are $675 per child. There may be space for parents; feel free to inquire.
