ID : 10896   
« back to classes page
Prerequisite: Participants must be age 9 to 13 in 2024, able to swim 50 yards and meet individual class level prerequisites.

Sailing camp is a unique opportunity for youth ages 7 to 13 to learn to sail in an environment focused on skill development, safety, and fun. While exploring our local waterways students will discover the magic of sailing and learn the skills needed to safely sail a small boat.

Sailing is a great teacher of life skills and students will learn teamwork, problem-solving, science and technology, and much more along the way. Our certified sailing instructors will help young sailors build skills, gain confidence and self-esteem while having fun and enjoying the outdoors.
Classes are offered for beginning through more advanced levels allowing young sailors to find a class to fit their experience level. Each day of sailing camp will include classroom instruction, demonstrations, and on-the-water practice. Campers will work together to rig, sail and de-rig Lido 14 dinghies.

Each session includes introduction and practice of new skills, STEM and marine environment topics and a review of the day. Fun games and special events will also be included each week. Select from our comprehensive schedule of classes and create your own summer of fun on the water.

Safety: All children participating in sailing camp must pass a swim check which will be held on the first day of each session.  Each child will swim approx. 20 yards and tread water for 2 minutes – lifejackets may be worn during the swim check.
