Sail Camp


At our sailing summer camps, youth learn basic sailing skills. Programs range from introductory programs that build comfort and confidence, to advanced classes that introduce racing. Camps are available for youth ages six to eighteen.

Race Team


We support a robust race program throughout the summer, fall, and spring each year. Our sailors compete in c420, Laser, cFJ, and Optimists at a regional and national level. Programs range from entry level to competitive. If your sailor is interested in racing, we have a program for you!

Our Mission: to provide equitable access to sailing summer camp programs that foster personal growth and youth development.

What is Next?

We are thrilled with our progress and momentum over the last 14 years, and excited for the future. 

2023 was an excellent year for our organization, and we have big goals in mind for 2024. We are looking forward to pursuing a waterfront facility to call home, supporting more underserved youth in our scholarship program, and strengthening our program staff and race teams.
