Youth Sailing School
Our Youth Sailing Program is a sailing school for children from age 8 to 17. This program, which is in a day camp format, provides sail training for the beginner through to intermediate sailors using Sail Canada’s CanSail “Learn to Sail” standards which focus on demonstrated skills and on-the-water training.
Youth Sailing in 2021 will have 2 key key learning programs:
1) "I CANSail": This program is a one-week session designed to introduce younger, first-time sailors to the fun of sailing. The target age group is 8 – 11 years old. The primary objectives of this program are to learn water safety and to let children experience how fun and rewarding learning how to sail can be! If your child loves sailing after completing "I CANSail", they may consider enrolling in additional two-week Sailing School sessions. The sessions run Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm and include statutory holidays. This program will be offered in the either of the first 2 weeks of camp only
- July 05 - July 09
- July 12 - July 16
2) Sailing School: Our core Sailing School Program is comprised of four, two-week sessions in July and August. The participants work at their own speed to achieve nationally recognized CanSail (Level 1-4) sailing competency levels. The sessions run Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm and include statutory holidays. At the end of the two weeks, parents and guardians are invited to watch their children on the water and enjoy a lunch BBQ. The two-week sessions for 2021 run as follows:
- July 05 - July 16
- July 19 - July 30
- August 2 - August 13
- August 16 - August 27
Note: To accommodate parents' work schedules, supervision is available from 8:00 am (pre-class) for early drop-offs, and from 4:00 to 5:00 pm (post-class). You must make prior arrangements for this extra cost item at the time of registration.
