Jr. Sailing
Little Skippers


Little Skippers is our half-day program for young campers who may not enjoy a full day of sailing. This program runs from 9:00 – 12:00. Students will learn the basics of sailing while having a great time with their friends. If desired, parents can choose to switch their children to a full-day program. Our goal is to pass on the love of sailing to a new generation.


Two Weeks: $675
