Summer Sailing Programs + Camps

CYC has summer sailing programs and camps for ages 5 – 18. In addition to learning about the sport, sailors can expect to have fun in the water, play games on the shore, complete STEM/sailing experiments and make friends. 

CYC junior sailing program and summer camps are designed to promote:

  • Lifelong love for sailing and having fun on the water

  • Experiences that build confidence and friendships
