Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced
2022 marks our fifteenth year of Sailing Camp. Bow to Stern’s “Jr. Sailing Day Camp” is for ages 6 through 15 in one week sessions. Program weeks : Monday, June 6th through Monday, August 26th. Our Keelboat/Leadership Program is for rising 10th-12th graders. Program weeks : June 20th-24th (ASA 101), June 27th-July1st (ASA 103), August 1st-5th (ASA 101), and August 8th-12th (ASA 103).
We have boats for all ages and experiences, starting with our Optimist class dinghies, followed by our Lasers and the FJ fleet. Beginner through advanced sailors use the appropriate boat according to size and age.
The Jr. Sailing Day Camp week starts with games, an intro to boating land lesson, followed by rigging boats. A typical day involves instruction tailored to experience level and abilities. By the end of the week, sailors will have learned sailing terminology, knot tying, sail trim, points of sail, sailing safety, capsizing, and navigation rules all according to each sailor’s ability.
Camp is a week of fun! Each day on the water is unlike the next. But above all, we teach character development through teamwork and experiential learning.
During the weeks of summer camp, your whole family can learn to sail via camp for the kids and private lessons for the adults.
All programs will provide an instructor/captain that will stay with their group for the entire length of the activity. We maintain a small group policy for all activities including lunch, breaks, sailing, etc. keeping surfaces and equipment clean, and observing the North Carolina Day Camp Requirements.
We suggest that you register quickly as some weeks may fill.
