Summer sailing camps - Glenmore Sailing School

Glenmore Sailing School Summer sailing camps

Our day camps have been running for the past 50 years, and they are one of our most popular programs. Camps are friendly and fun. Campers sail every day, weather permitting, and also take part in daily games, morning Flag Circle, a field trip, and the much-beloved tradition of Pirates Day.

Sailing camps are done for 2021. Check back in spring of 2022.

Youth day camps

Day camps are available for ages 7 to 17 and run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with optional pre-care and post-care from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The school provides boats, lifejackets, and all safety equipment. Students are required to bring:

  • closed-toed non-slip footwear
  • a change of clothes, including underwear
  • rain gear such as a rain jacket or rain pants, according to weather
  • packed lunch or a letter from a parent giving them permission to go offsite to purchase lunch

Beginners under 100 pounds enter the sailing program at Wet Feet 9+. Beginners over 100 pounds start in CANSail 1. From there, students move through the levels based upon their individual skill development and instructor recommendation.

Children age of 11 and/or under 100 pounds sail Optimists, in summer camp. After the Opti program, the boat class is determined by CANSail level. CANSail 1 and 2 use the 420s. CANSail 3 and 4 sail either Laser or race-rigged 420.
