Living Classrooms Foundation has provided elementary, middle, and high school students with unique hands-on, interdisciplinary and environmental education programs aboard historic ships and on land since 1985. These dynamic, “learning by doing” programs emphasize applied learning in math, science, social studies, language arts, and social skills.  Teamwork and cooperative learning are key objectives as participants sail the boat and explore the Chesapeake Bay.

This summer, our Maritime Education department is thrilled to have our boats return to the water after spending 2020 landlocked by the pandemic.  The crew will be offering private group charters aboard our historic education vessels, skipjack Sigsbee and Chesapeake Bay buy boat Mildred Belle.  Programming ranges from educational sails (4th grade – adult) to team-building and relaxing social cruises for adults.  Gather your group and join us on the water for an experience you won’t soon forget!
