Summer Camp 2022

2022 Summer Program Description:

This 2022 summer we are pleased to offer several different Youth Sailing Camps. Whether your child  is a seasoned sailor or has never been on a boat, we have a program to fit your needs. Sailors will use Naples Community Sailing Center boats and sail on Naples Bay. Learn To Sail Programs are designed to introduce sailors to boating and the basics of sailing. Topics include boat rigging, knot tying, boat handling skills for beginners and jibing, tacking, racing rules and tactics for more advanced sailors.

Pre-Registration and a non-refundable deposit of $100 is required as space is limited and classes fill up very quickly. Students must bring their own lunch, water, and life jacket with a plastic whistle attached. Each student will be required to perform a swim test at the beginning of each course. Life jacket rentals are available for $15 per session.
