Spend Your Summer On The Lake!

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 2024 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 are also excited to offer the Youth Doublehand option and Adventure camp. We’ve introduced a brand new racing curriculum as well for our sailors interested in a potential future on an SSP race team. 

On the first day of camps, instructors will conduct water comfort checks and capsize drills for all participants. At a minimum, participants MUST be comfortable in the water.

Finding Your Perfect Camp

Sailors should enroll in camps appropriate to their age and skill-level.

Take a look at our summer camp descriptions below to help you find the best fit for your camper. Please contact us at if you have any more questions!

Camp Basics

Come prepared for your first day of camp at Sail Sand Point!
 A few reminders to help you be ready:
Everyone should come dressed for the weather in layers that can be added or removed based on temperature and in clothes that you don’t mind getting wet. We will go out on the water on the first day, so come prepared!
The weather can be unpredictable and it helps to be ready for rain and cool weather at all times. Sail Sand Point has lockers and cubbies to store extra belongings while participants are on the water, but we do not recommend storing anything valuable.

What to Bring

  • Layered clothing that can get wet and be added or removed based on weather
  • Sun protection: sunscreen, sunglasses, hat
  • Bathing suit, towel, change of clothes
  • Closed toe, nonskid shoes
  • A full, reusable bottle of water and snacks for kids
  • Lunch for all day camps*

Sail Sand Point will provide life jackets

*In order to help us reduce plastic waste, please consider using reusable or recyclable food storage containers and water bottles. SSP has a water bottle refill station, as well as recycling and compost bins.

Water Comfort Check

On the first day of all youth camps (except for Mommy/Daddy and Me), instructors will conduct water comfort checks and capsize drills for all participants.

The water comfort check consists of entering the water while wearing a lifejacket, briefly treading water, swimming a minimum of 20 feet, and then exiting the water. The goal is not to assess swimming ability but rather general comfort and ability to stay calm in the water.

More Info

Participants in youth camps must be signed out of class each day by a parent or another previously authorized adult. You may authorize someone during online registration, at camp check in, or by contacting SSP.

Parking is available in front of SSP’s building, and if our lot is full, overflow parking is available next to the Arena Sports Building. For driving directions, please visit our directions page.

If you haven’t already, please review the SSP Cancellation & Transfer Policy.

Please be sure that you have signed a waiver before coming to camp.
