Summer Sailing for Youngsters aged 9-17.

Supercharge your kids summer by enrolling them for a session or two at the AYC Sailing Camp.

Our courses are designed to be fun, yet instructional, with students earning their US Sailing basic keelboat certificate. Skills are built at the student’s pace through five consecutive half day sessions.

Courses run through the summer vacation and students can sign up for a week of morning sessions, a week of afternoon sessions, or both. If both AM and PM sessions are booked in the same week, please provide a packed lunch and someone will be on hand to supervise the lunch break.

Our instructors lead classroom and on-the-water instruction based on the recommended US Sailing Program curriculum and adapted for sailing on Joppa Flats and the Merrimack River, with plenty of exercises and races thrown in for fun!

Youngsters love it and we have many repeat students – it’s a fun, learning experience in a safe controlled environment.

Student Information

We prefer students bring their own U.S.C.G. approved life jacket/PFD to ensure comfort and fit, or the club can supply one on request.

Students should dress appropriately for the conditions of the day and wear closed-toe non-skid shoes that may get wet. Bring sunglasses, sunscreen, hat, insect repellent, water bottle and a rain jacket. Bring a safety strap or ‘croaky’ for your glasses and a hat clip as these things have a habit of getting blown overboard.

To ensure the safety of the children, please be advised that we require that all students be picked up and dropped off no more than 15 minutes from the start or finish of the classes.

Parents Meeting

There will be a mandatory 10 min parents meeting on the first day at the start of class to familiarize the parents and/or guardians with the syllabus of the course, rules for student’s behavior, and general information sharing.
