Sailing

Students are taught by Instructors certified by the United States Sailing Authority. The main emphasis of the camp is fun and safety. Campers will learn: to speak the language of sailing, how to rig their own boat, safely leave the dock and return, use the wind to sail in any direction, to right the boat when it tips over, then de-rig and put away the boat at day’s end. While on shore campers meet new friends while being taught: care of their boat, rules of safe boating, how to tie the most useful knots, do some swimming, paddling, hiking and much more. Learning to sail their own boat across the lake and safely returning to shore gives your child increased self-esteem and confidence in their abilities.
