"Ryan did an amazing job with us, going through all the rigging and systems to help us figure out our boat. He mentored us on our first sail, helping us get used to the motoring parts especially. We had our first solo sail today and, though it was not perfect, it was fun and successful! We will have a few more lessons: reefing on this boat, more adventures in docking, getting ready to put it away for the season. We look forward to sharing the sailing joy - and racing lessons next summer!

"My three children had the best time at Stem Camp, thanks to a generous scholarship donor. As a widow, I was only able to pay a small portion. We live on a small lake and a neighbor taught one of my children how to sail, which drew the interest of my other children. Because they were able to go to camp, they learned a life long skill and skills that will help save their lives. They enjoyed the peer-to-peer lessons, which I applaud. Those teens really were knowledgeable and made safety a number one priority. Just yesterday, my 14 yr. old son took his 10 yr. old sister sailing on a Hobi! Both went to camp! Thank you STEM CAMP! I hope donors will continue to give because these camps are priceless. Thank you! I hope my children can attend next summer."

"My daughters enjoyed the camp, made new friends, and had a great time. The instructors encouraged their curiosity and planted a love for sailing. Highly recommended!"

"My daughter had the opportunity to attend STEM Camp Weeks One and Two.  She enjoyed everything about it…the combination of sailing and STEM!  She had never sailed before and after the first week she took our family out on one of the catamarans as the skipper.  She loved how the information was presented in a fun and interesting way.  The teachers were great and everyone was so friendly and welcoming!  I was impressed with how much she learned and that safety was a priority!"
Teppie S - STEM Camp Parent '21
"I enjoyed the course very much. It was the perfect combination of STEM and sailing. We got to learn how to sail and also the science behind it."
Clare - Participant STEM Camp 2021
"This was the best day of the Summer! I cannot believe I've never sailed before! It was so fun being on the water and making friends. GBS&P helped me make memories I'll never forget. Thank you GBS&P!"
"I’ve never realized what I learned in math class could be applicable to real life! I felt like the captain of a ship to conquer the waters!"
"This was the most rewarding job in my life. Working with kids from all walks of life to help them find something to give them confidence and help them grow."
"The kids had a blast on the water which allowed them to appreciate connecting STEM with the fun they were having. Thank you GBSP!"
"I am from Minnesota. I was online searching for a gift card to a unique adventure  for my friends. It took a bit to find the right experience. 

We are a group of seven couples giving one gift. The wedding couple enjoys travel so the gift is coming in one suitcase with vintage travel items inside. Each item and the corresponding gift represents something about each couple and the journey that married life is. The real gifts are a certificates for the wedding couple to do together. There is a gift certificate to a local winery, the movies, a wall print, Menard's, the National Railroad Museum, a local escape room adventure, and your sailing experience. 

The sailing experience makes the point that in life, as in sailing, there isn't a lot of room. One of our couples has moved a lot in their time together. So their experience represents that concept. And the marriage advice is, as you pack your life, make sure you are packing what is truly important and needed. An experience like yours is a glorious way to get that across.

So your online presence is what led me to you. Keep that up. And make sure they post a comment whenever they get to turn in the certificate.

This is a great wedding gift. That's why I bought it for them. Cash is too impersonal. How much better a day together on the open water doing something new and fun that demands some teamwork from the couple. I can't wait to hear how it goes.
I hope you continue to have success in the future. It is a valuable asset for the community."

"My wife and I had a wonderful time sailing with Green Bay Sail & Paddle this last season. The lessons, which were run by knowledgeable and passionate instructors, were extremely helpful since we were just beginners when we started. Plus, the sailing we were able to do on our own through their boat rental was amazingly! I think sailing is so enjoyable because by simply choosing the weather you go out in and how aggressively you sail it can be relaxing, exciting, or both!"

"Outdoor Adventure and learning new skills are just some of the things Girls Scouts gained by partnering with Green Bay Sail & Paddle. Girls practiced teamwork, applied STEM knowledge, and enjoyed supported risk taking. The informative, guided instruction helped manifest our mission in action as many girls exhibited courage and confidence to sail on their own! The Girl Scouts were thankful and appreciative for great instructors and are looking forward to continuing to use their new skill! Thank you Green Bay Sail & Paddle."
Karmen L. - Chief Executive Officer, Girl Scouts of Northwestern Great Lakes
"Being a part of Green Bay Sail & Paddle was the most amazing part of my summer. Knowledgeable and friendly staff made learning safe, fun, and easy. Now I volunteer to share the joy.  Thanks, GBSP!"

"Green Bay Sail & Paddle is bringing to life the beautiful waters and resources we have here in Green Bay, WI! The opportunities for everyone of all ages– from young children and teens to adults and parents quickly change lives and become memories forever."

"Our family was honored to participate in the GBSP program in Green Bay again this summer.  Our first summer, we were amazed at the confidence it built in our daughter. This year she came back for the Sailing 1 & 2 classes.  The first lesson, Owen and Chris waved her over to their side, letting her know that she was one of them. Realizing she was a part of the program and that she had something to contribute to her peers built on that confidence.  Her dad decided to take the class as well. So now they have this great hobby to share but one where she gets to be in the leadership role. That doesn't come around often for a 3rd grader.  GBSP has created a space where my 9 year old knows she is welcome and that her contribution is welcome and encouraged.  Everyone in this group has always welcomed us with open arms and we cannot thank them enough for the opportunity to take part."
