YMCA Youth Boating Program starts June 16

The Beaufort YMCA in conjunction with Spirit of America provides unique boating opportunities available to youth. The Spirit of America Program focuses on STEM-based (science, technology, engineering, math) practices, education, safe boating environmental awareness, leadership development and physical fitness. This program actively targets youth participants and has set a goal this year of putting at least 50 percent of the participants through the programs on scholarship. This amounts to thousands worth of programming provided at no or low cost.

The YMCA Boating Experience, a program of the Spirit of America Foundation, is the only community-based non-profit boating organization in Beaufort County.

For more information about signing up or volunteering, contact YMCA Boating Director Paul Spencer at boatingymca@gmail.com or 843-522-9622. The Wardle Family YMCA is located at 1801 Richmond Ave. in Port Royal
