A Look Ahead: Fall/Winter 2021-22

A Look Ahead: Fall/Winter 2021-22

It’s never too early to start dreaming about warm weather and sunshine, and these pictures of USM’s Summer I.D.E.A.S. youth sailing class are giving us major summer vibes. Held in partnership with the Milwaukee Community Sailing Center, the program introduces children to rigging, sail theory, basic maneuvers, and more under the watchful supervision of MCSC instructors. “I’ve never gone sailing before so I didn’t know what to expect,” said George Zhang ’24 who participated last summer. “There’s more teamwork involved than I thought there would be in sailing. It’s been really fun.”

Sailing is just one of many classes offered through the Summer I.D.E.A.S. program, which provides enrichment, academic, and athletic opportunities to children in PK (age 3) through grade 12. Programming is open to the public, and runs from June 21 to August 19. Visit for more information.
