Adventure and Performance Camps: All Skill Levels Welcome! 

Ages 8-14 (cost: $320 for members; $400 for non-members)

Youth of all ages and skill levels will get to experience the fun and joy of sailing this summer. Adventure Camp is perfect for instilling the love of sailing, while our Performance Spinnaker Camp option is a great step up for those who are ready to drive the boats without a coach aboard. Our J/22s and Sonars typically hold 4 campers with 1 instructor aboard each boat.

Novices and Beginners spend the majority of their time learning the basics of sailing through an experiential environment. Intermediate sailors spend more time honing their sailing skills and sailing knowledge through more in-depth chalk talks and more focused sailing on the J/22s. And once your child is driving without a coach aboard, it's time for the Performance Spinnaker option (see below).

Performance Spinnaker Camp - for advanced sailors 

Ages 12-14 (Cost: $320 for members; $400 for non-members)

Now in its fifth year!

Sailors must be at least 12 years of age who can drive and crew a J/22 without a coach aboard. If you are unsure of your child's preparation for this program, we strongly recommend talking with one of our staff before registering for this program. 

The instructors combine hands-on instruction with powerboat-coaching support to provide campers with a unique, rewarding educational experience. Campers eat lunch and enjoy the same fun activities of the regular camp (such as "BOP Day"), but more emphasis is placed on the study of performance-oriented sailing. Campers signing up for this course must be self-sufficient and ready to make decisions without a coach aboard. To register, click on your desired camp week (above or through our CALENDAR and select "Performance Spinnaker Camp" when registering.
