Sailing camps - Glenmore Sailing School

Glenmore Sailing School Sailing camps

Our sailing day camps have been running for the past 50 years. They are friendly, fun and one of our most popular programs. Sailing day camps are available for ages 7 to 17.

How to choose the right day camp

Beginners under 100 lb enter the sailing program at Wet Feet 7-8 yrs and Wet feet 9 plus. 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.

About our instructors

Our instructors are Sail Canada certified, knowledgable and active members of the sailing community. They are enthusiastic about making sure the next generation of sailors are just as passionate as they are.

What are classes like?

Campers sail every day, weather permitting. They get in class time to learn sailing theory and work on knots. They will also take part in daily sailing related games, morning Flag Circle, a field trip, and the much-beloved tradition of Pirates Day.
