Rock the Dock Benefit

Sunday July 3rd – Community Sailing Center

Help us give local youth the opportunity to create lasting memories on Lake Champlain this summer. Proceeds from our 8th Annual Rock the Dock Benefit will support the Community Sailing Center, providing means to remove financial barriers and provide access for all to the most beloved treasure of our state – Lake Champlain.

Not only does the Rock the Dock Benefit help fund over 1,818 meaningful scholarships annually, it is also a party to remember! Each year, over 350 attendees enjoy a fantastic evening on the CSC dock celebrating the holiday directly under the fireworks.

Water Works Fair

Sunday, July 31st – Burlington Waterfront

The Water Works Fair is an annual community event bringing together educators, advocates, municipal departments, and responsible businesses to celebrate Lake Champlain. The event provides every resident the opportunity to engage, interact and understand the role our lake plays in the lives of those who live on it’s shores and along it tributaries. Visitors will recognize the impact stewardship plays in the health of our lake through experiential learning to recognize solutions for pollution prevention, and encourage actions to secure the lake’s future. We hope to see you there!

Saturday August 27th – Community Sailing Center

As the season comes to a close, join us for our 2nd annual open house on the lake to celebrate YOU – our friends, campers, supporters, volunteers, and families. We invite you to come down to Center to sail, paddle, and play with us free of charge.

The Sailorbration is a amazing opportunity for campers to “show and tell” everything they learned and experienced over the summer at the CSC. We encourage you to bring the whole family down, thank the incredibly hardworking CSC staff, and get on the lake one last time.
