Spirit of America
at Lorain Harbor Boat Club

Spirit of American is a national boating education program locally adminstered by the Lorain Metro Parks and hosted by the Lorain Harbor Boat Club.

LHBC provides both our facilities and volunteers from our membership to operate the program under the administration and guidance of the Lorain County MetroParks. The one-week day camp is open to all youth in and around Lorain County ages 12 to 14 years old. The program provides classroom training and on-the-water experience in sailboats, kayaks, canoes and powerboats. Often a visit to our neighbors, the United States Coast Guard Station Lorain, is included in the week-long activities.
