Summer Camp

Our Sailing Camp is geared toward all ages and skill levels. Beginner to intermediate level sailors ages 6-17 can participate in our Summer Camp sailing on Optimists, SailCubes, Laser Bahias and other craft. A simple swim test is giving on the first day of each camp session and children are divided into groups by age and size, some groups require previous sailing experience. Each week-long session is $475.

(Monday—Friday 9 am – 4pm).

We offer several different dates to accommodate your family’s summer schedule. Children in our program learn to sail in a fun and safe environment.  Children learn how to rig & launch a boat, basic knots, sailing terminology, develop wind awareness, and learn to sail a race course.
