Junior Explorers

Kids learn the basics of water and boating safety, using catamarans, kayaks, and SUPs to explore Lake Washington.

Youth Beginner 

Ages 8-12. No Prior Experience Necessary. $425

This repeatable camp puts kids in the driver’s seat of their own opti, where sailors will develop the basic skills for a strong sailing foundation. By the end of camp, most sailors will be able to rig an opti and control it in light breeze. This camp is a good fit for brand new sailors and returning beginners alike.

Youth Intermediate 

Ages 10-12. Prerequisite: Youth Beginner (or equivalent). $425

For sailors with a strong grasp on all topics and skills introduced in Youth Beginner, this camp teaches increasingly advanced concepts so that by the end of camp all sailors are comfortable sailing upwind and downwind in medium breeze.

Advanced Opti Sailing 

Ages 10-13. Pre-requisite: Youth Intermediate (or equivalent). $425

Sailors will explore racing tactics and strategies while learning how to sail fast! Enrollment in SPOT is included with this camp so sailors can keep racing all summer long!

**Two weeks, half day 1pm-4pm.
