Give the Adventure of Learning to Young People and Their Families
Central Coast Ocean Adventures is a direct-service 501(c)(3) nonprofit provider of profoundly engaging and impactful ocean-based educational experiences to the communities of Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. CCOA’s educational programs are created out of direction from our communities and what priorities are most needed.
Create Opportunity and Access
CCOA wants every child and their family to have the opportunity to form deeper connections with the environment, each other, and themselves through exploring sailing and the sea.
To ensure everyone has access to CCOA’s enriching programs, we provide them to schools, community-based organizations, and the public, often at reduced or no cost.
Breaking Down Barriers
As a result, CCOA is committed to break the barriers that exist that keep some from enjoying and learning from one of our most valuable resources- The Santa Barbara Channel. These barriers can be social, cultural, geographic, and economic.
Be the Change
With your generous donation, together, we can change a life to better communicate with others, comprehend school academics, care for the environment, and believe in one’s self.
Please consider donating today to provide CCOA’s adventure-inspired learning to those who may otherwise not have access to these transformative opportunities.
