The goal of our camps is to provide an exciting and fun experience during which students develop sailing skills, learn seamanship, water safety, gain self-confidence and most importantly have fun!! Our step process of teaching sailing takes young aspiring sailors from our introductory course, to learning how to sail and beyond.  Each step is outlined below by level.
