Set Sail on the Appledore IV, an 85 foot tall schooner while fulfilling the requirements for the Novas Splash! (for Scouts) and Wade! (for Venturers)

Saturday June 8th – Bay City, Michigan



We will explore how water affects our lives every day by looking at aquatic ecosystems, learning about water processes, and examining the importance of water treatment. In the meantime, we will be sailing down the Saginaw River and into Lake Huron, and also learn a bit about the schooner!

Due to size constraints, admission is limited to 35 youth.

Because only a limited number of participants will fit on the Apledore IV, we ask that this is a drop-off event. However, if there are still open spots as we near the event, we will open registration for parents to sail along at the participant rate.
