Summer Camp 2017

Our mission is to teach children how to sail in a fun and safe environment and to instill in them a love for the sport.  Respect for boats, each other, and the water, along with sportsmanship and safety, are the guiding principles of the program.

To ensure the quality instruction and safety, space is limited to 8 children per session.


  1. Children ages 12-17 (Child must be entering Middle School Fall 2017)
  2. All campers must be qualified swimmers “water safe.” Campers will be required to swim 50-meters while wearing a life jacket on the first day of camp.
