420 Camp

Full-day camps for beginner sailors seeking summer fun & adventure!

1 Week Sessions – Starting July 6, 2020

Schedule: 9am – 4pm Monday through Friday

Program Cost: $325 per student


Who should take this course?
Beginner/intermediate sailors, ages 11-17, who have completed 5th-10th grades.

What if my child has some sailing experience?
Instructors are conscious of varied levels of experience but none is required. Staff arrange classes so as to accommodate all levels of learning. If you’ve taken this class and feel confident in your sailing skills, you may want to consider our 420 Adventure Camp or 420/Laser Racing for even more fun!

What will my child learn?

On a typical day our US Sailing Certified instructors will introduce new material in a classroom setting before heading out to spend the majority of the day on the water. While on the water, sailors will receive group and one-on-one coaching to improve skills and sense of confidence on the water. As the class grows and learns together the instructors will introduce adventure sails in addition to shorter trips. STEM lessons, swimming, sailing games, and other physical activities are interspersed throughout the day in order to make this a fun group experience for all!

What do we need to bring?
Students must bring their own lunches and snacks as well as a lifejacket, change of clothes, water shoes and towel.

What comes next?
We recommend 2 or more one-week camps for those who really want to improve their sailing skills. Graduates from this class do well in our 420 Adventure, 420 Racing, and or our High School programs.
