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!

For the 2022 sailing season, we are thrilled to be bringing back more intermediate and advanced options for youth and teens, as well as our popular Junior Explorers camp and our Sailing into STEM camp.

We will continue to implement the extensive safety protocols we implemented in 2020 with the advent of the COVID-19 Virus, and as always, the safety of our staff and community is paramount in all decisions that we make. 

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 on these pages (broken down by age range).


Class for Ages 5-8 

Camp for Ages 8-17
