Camp Information
The sailing camp program is designed for children from 8 to 17 years of age.
The children are grouped according to age, and experience. Sailors are placed
in single- and double-handed boats for lots of on-the-water learning experience.
The goal of the course is to develop an appreciation for sailing through rigorous
FUN! The camp, for beginners to advanced sailors, is designed to teach
basic sailing techniques and water safety for the beginners and lead into racing
and higher level techniqures for the more advanced. The Club currently sails
Prams, O'Pen BICS, Sunfish, Lasers and 420's for our aspiring sailors. The purpose
of the program is to develop in each child an appreciation for and love of sailing.
We are currently expecting to run six one-week basic & advanced 
training courses.

What will my child learn?

Our highly trained staff uses the US Sailing instructional system in an open learning environment. Classes begins with land-based discussions and demonstrations followed by on-the-water instruction where skills like upwind sailing, downwind sailing, reaching and docking are covered. Additional activities like swimming, weather awareness, knot tying & on/off water related games are interspersed throughout the day to keep the action going and provide a fun group experience. As the class progresses, instructors may even begin some introduction to racing if kids show interest. We recommend 2 or more sessions for those who really want to improve their sailing skills. Signing up for multiple sessions is a great way to get your sailor to more advanced levels of sailing.
