Onset Bay Summer Program has Successful Inaugural Season

WAREHAM – The Buzzards Bay Coalition is calling its inaugural Onset Bay Summer Program a success.

The coalition partnered with the Boys and Girls Club of Wareham, Wareham CARE and the New Bedford Community Boating Center for the program which had three sessions that run through the middle of August.

Mornings at the Onset Bay program start with either kayaking or shoreline exploration and ecology led by a member of the Coalition’s education team’ or swim lessons with instructors from the Gleason Family YMCA.

Each afternoon is dedicated to sailing with CBC instructors. Kids learn everything from rigging and launching boats to points of sail, hiking out and steering.

Participants also developed a love for capsizing their boats in Onset Bay, despite initial hesitation.

The Coalition green-lit the program for this summer after a successful pilot program with the Boys and Girls Club last summer.

The program will be a central component of its developing Onset Bay Center which will provide a community space and educational space in the renovated Onset Bathhouse.

Onset Bathhouse renovations and the restoration of Wickets Island are expected to begin early in the fall.
