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 2021 sailing season, in consideration of ongoing public health concerns around COVID-19, SSP has implemented numerous protocols to protect the safety of staff and students, including program offerings that look different from past years. We will be offering our flagship Youth Beginner camp allowing our youngest sailors to learn to sail in our singlehanded opti sailboats. No advanced sailing camps will be offered in 2021, however we are pleased to offer our new Learn to Sail – 1-on-1 lessons, a private lesson style format for youth and teens that utilizes our learn to sail curriculum and provides each sailor with a dedicated instructor. Depending on the prior experience, age and weight of each participant, their instructor will choose the boat that best suits their needs (Opti, Laser, RS Feva or FJ).

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).


2022 camp schedule coming early February!
