In response to national, state & local guidelines for re-opening our programs, summer sessions will reflect social distancing, personal protection and sanitary procedures. Sessions are reduced to one week ( five days). Parents are asked to read the policies & procedures carefully before considering pre-registration for a session. Temperatures will be checked daily and equipment assigned to each student will be theirs only for the entire week. Equipment will be sanitized daily. Staff will also be checked daily.

We look forward to welcoming your child(-ren) to ESC this summer!

  • Session Refunds will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • 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. Instructors do have discretion to offer alternative activities on no-wind days that are appropriate for the students and follow safety/health guidelines, e.g. kayaking & SUPs.
  • Classes are held in North Shore 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.
  • Information about our school year programs will be available online.
  • The $25 NON-refundable fee is a one-time fee per child, not per class.

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]
