The Waterfront Program turns 50 in 2021!

We are planning an amazing reunion celebration and look forward to seeing you there.

The main event will coincide with the Eckerd College Reunion Weekend March 4–7, 2021. Please save those dates and bring your friends and family to celebrate with us!

Relive some memories! Take a virtual tour of the docks.

Our goal is to unite as many Waterfront friends as possible—alumni, past and present Waterfront team members, Waterfront student employees, Waterfront recreation users, parents and community members/partners.

The year will include regional events and social media challenges that will celebrate the Waterfront Program and what it’s best known for: teaching lifetime skills, instilling an education-through-service ethic and developing lifelong friendships.

Fundraising

To date, we are 79% of the way to reaching our initial goal to raise $1 million for this historic event!
