Youth Camps

Sail Sand Point’s summer camps are a fun way to experience sailing and paddling for the first time, master new skills, or just hang out on the water with friends. Each of our camps are taught by a US Sailing Level 1 Certified Instructor and follow our teaching philosophy: “Safety, Fun, and Learning.” Sailors who feel safe, can have fun. And sailors who are having fun will continue to learn!

All camps are full day (9 AM – 4 PM), unless otherwise specified. On the first day of camps, instructors will conduct swim checks and capsize drills for all participants. At a minimum, participants MUST be comfortable in the water.

Our complete camp schedule is listed below. For full descriptions of each camp, click the title of the camp or view our 2019 Program & Event Guide. Registration opens February 1st at noon PST. 

Scholarships
Sail Sand Point is pleased to offer 50% and 100% Scholarships for all camps and classes to ensure everyone can play on the water! For more information, or to apply, please see our Scholarships Page.


Sailors should enroll in camps appropriate to their age and skill-level. If you have any questions about which camp your child should take, check out our Summer Camp Progression Chart or contact the office at info@sailsandpoint.org
