Sailing Camps


Sailing camps for children aged 8 to 15 – Ideal for beginners, intermediate sailors and those folks who have attended a sailing camp before but are not proficient. Campers will focus on water safety, capsize drills, man overboard drills, sailboat terminology, rigging, sail trim, points of sail, wind and weather and sailing a course. Once They have been signed off on their red books for intro and intermediate sailing skills, light wind and heavy wind they can move up to the next level.  Camp runs for 5 days from 9am – 3pm.

Typical Camp Schedule

This is our typical schedule but the ever-changing Outer Banks weather creates updates along the way. Our first goal is to keep the campers safe and having fun while spending as much time on the water as possible. Weather depending, we definitely shift schedules around to maximize our time on the water.

Food & Drink

Students should plan to bring lunch and a snack. We will provide cold water and/or Gatorade on site.  All lunches and snacks should be peanut free, but let us know if there are any other allergy concerns.  On our last day of camp we typically have a ‘fun’ awards ceremony with drinks and snacks for the kids.  

Sun & Safety:

Our students safety and comfort is our primary concern.  We require that all kids know how to swim.  We ask that each student comes prepared with a hat, sunscreen (already applied as well as extra for re-application), sun shirts, water shoes and a water bottle.
