    BIAC hopes to run programming this summer but the COVID pandemic and its restrictions mean we can’t yet make concrete plans. As health departments change the restrictions we will evaluate what programming we will be able to run within the context of those restrictions.

    If you are interested in summer programs, please indicate your interest by signing up here and we will notify you of our post-quarantine programs and sessions as soon as we have a schedule. 

    We may also add classes in the fall or winter months based on interest. 

    In the meantime, start looking through some of our program by clicking the link below. 

    Thank you for your interest! We hope to get everyone on the water soon in a safe and fun manner.
