This past Saturday we had an amazing time aboard The Schooner Pride for our Out to S.E.A. educational sail with a group of charismatic girl scouts! The girls learned sailing terminology and phrases from the crew and Captain Brian, and also learned how to tie knots, steer the ship, raise and lower the sails, and for some of the more curious, learned how to use a schooner toilet! **Pictures from the day are below.
What is Out to S.E.A.?
Out to S.E.A. is our newest program, which works to educate students outside of classroom walls and enhance their teamwork and leadership skills. All of our Out to S.E.A. educational sails are approximately 2.5 hours in duration and operate aboard The Schooner Pride, a tall ship that runs out of Charleston harbor.
Budding sailors and teachers, alike, will enjoy an exciting and interactive sail aboard the Pride, guaranteed!
Our curriculum is correlated to South Carolina educational standards and students are taught using inquiry-based, hands-on methods in small groups.
Whether you want to teach your students about the rich history of the Charleston Harbor, help them understand the scientific composition of sea shanties, or simply invest a few hours of learning how to sail, our sails are customizable and we have what it takes to make this trip a memorable and educational experience for both you and your students.
And for groups interested in a full day of excitement and education on the harbor, we have also partnered with our neighbor, the South Carolina Aquarium, to bring an expanded field trip opportunity to your day.
