Summer Youth Sailing Camp at the
Half Moon Bay Yacht Club

No experience is necessary; beginners are welcome! 
Campers do need to be comfortable in the water while wearing a life jacket and wetsuit.

Camp sessions are each one week long, 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM Monday through Friday

What do campers do?

Each week’s curriculum caters to the campers’ unique interests and abilities…no prior experience is necessary.  In addition to basic sailing and water safety, camp’s main focus is to get everyone out on the water, explore the marine environment, and build confidence though hands-on experiential learning. The most important thing is for the campers to have fun! (Safely, of course!)

Bedtime Stories ~ The Three Bears by Paul Galdone

Bedtime Stories presents ~ The Three Bears by Paul Galdone. This Bedtime Story is read by Lorraine Sarullo. Lorraine has a chiropractic practice in Burlingame called Awaken Wellness.

How to Use Bedtime Stories as an Independent Reading Tutor

Prepare your child for a relaxing audio podcast experience. Whether in the car, the store, or before bed, let your child immerse their ear in their imagination. School is largely auditory. So, prepare your kid to listen and visualize a story without TV or video. Just listen!

Then share the book to the audio. Listen and read. Allow your child to teach themselves to read. Using visual/audio anchor words your child will figure out the visual/sound connections by themselves. Eventually, they will be able to read the book to you all by themselves!

Coastside Buzz Mission and Goals

Infinite Content ~ Coastside Buzz is a website on the internet. You can tell a story by article/photo-essay, podcast and video. The story can be as long as it has to be.
“To Give You a Voice, in Your Own Words ​” ~ Support local content that is not editorialized, and aims for original sources as often as possible. Submit your own content.  Produce free (if you know how) or low-cost content (if you need help), whether via articles (photo-essays), podcasts and/or videos.
Stories are no longer constrained by physical space like newspapers and radio. On Coastside Buzz every story gets its own infinite web page. That means infinite space for a story which can be an article, a podcast, a video, or all three. Tell your story, the way you want to tell it. Come play and help us produce great local content.
