The Greater Lawrence Community Boating Program is one of the most affordable summer programs in the Merrimack Valley. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, we are dedicated to keeping out costs and overhead low so that we can keep our membership rates down, yet still create a positive summer experience for all youth and adults in the Merrimack Valley. As a member, you and your family will have full access to all of our craft on a first come, first served basis, seven days a week, eight hours a day. We take pride in creating a fun and safe program for members of all ages. Click on a program below to learn more about it!

Our hands on and rigorous sailing program is designed to get sailors of all ages and abilities out on the water.

This can be done at any local swim club, or at our facility.

Still not convinced? Stop in for a complimentary day pass to give us a test drive!
