Your child will experience the joy of sailing and learning the essential elements of boat handling, seamanship, water safety and sportsmanship in a safe and fun environment.
Campers gain self confidence as they master the skills of sailing, learning lifelong lessons that build character, foster teamwork, and strengthen respect for self, others, and the marine environment.
Basic swimming skills are required. Camp will be held rain or shine and in the event of bad weather, basic skills and sailing - related activities will be taught indoors.
