The Wetfeet program is aimed at young children who want to learn about sailing and water safety. The goal of this program is to get children comfortable around boats and on the water and prepare them for the Optimist 1 program. Although participants will learn basic sailing skills, participants are not expected to be able to sail on their own at the completion of this course. They will usually sail accompanied by an instructor or volunteer.
The curriculum includes exploring Alta Lake and its surrounding parks. On any given day, half of the day will be focused on water activities, and the other half will involve water games, Opti-tow adventures with focus on learning steering and balance, excursions in one of our inflatable safety boats and arts and crafts with a marine focus on boat parts and water safety.
