"Just wanted to reach out and say thank you once again. The girls learned so much! Your staff are so knowledgeable and kind. It was a very enjoyable experience for our girls; and of course it was fun to see all the kiddos race.  Our friends & us are already talking about planning a couples night sailing over there!"

"Our son had the best time at stem sailing camp. It was his first camp experience of any kind and Green Bay Sail {and Paddle} set the bar high!  We weren’t sure what to expect since no one in our family has any sailing knowledge, but everyone was so welcoming and did a fantastic job making it all interesting and not at all intimidating.  Our son couldn’t stop talking about what he learned and really impressed everyone with how much he learned in a short amount of time.  He is itching to get back and learn more which shows how much fun he had.  Because of his experience our whole family has become interested in sailing so thank you Green Bay Sail {and Paddle} for opening up this new world to us!"
Jilane - STEM Camp
"All the STEM exercises were very informative and I learned a lot especially the different boat hulls. I also liked building the recycled boats and racing them so please bring that back next time! You also did a good job with the math exercises and {they} were not too easy and not too difficult. As for sailing I felt much more confident on a boat at the end of the week than I did at the beginning!  "
Dominic - STEM Camp Student
"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."

"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."

"Green Bay Sail & Paddle operated like a well-oiled machine."

"We had a bunch of fun today! We learned how to recover from capsizing, how to pick up a man on board if they fell off. You got to know your partner, and it was fun talking!"
