For the summer program FAQs
  • Refunds will be considered if requested within 72 hours of the first day of class.
  • ESC’s programs are held outside ( and on the water). We have no control over the weather and cannot refund days when the weather is such that it would pose a safety issue for students or staff.
  • Classes are held in Overlook Park, 13001 N. Cleveland Avenue, N. Ft. Myers, just over the US 41 bridge into North Fort Myers. ESC is located in the park, adjacent to the Best Western Hotel.
  • A Parent’s Day for sailing is scheduled the last day of each session. Information about our school year programs will be available and staff will be on hand to answer questions.

Thanks to CMCS (sailing organization), we are able to offer a limited number of scholarships for SAILING this summer. Families who might not otherwise be able to send their child(children) are invited to request a one-time scholarship. For application and information, contact Marla Parker  [email protected]
