Mohican Sailing Club camps are designed to introduce kids and adults to the joy of sailing, or advance the skills of those with sailing experience! Adults are encouraged to sign up with their child to make it a fun bonding experience! Or anyone can come as an individual no matter how old or young (must be age 7 years old by the start of camp). Each session is one week long, meeting daily from 9:00-3:30. The camp is held at the Mohican Sailing Club.
We are doing something new this year! We are offering an intermediate/advanced camp for anyone who has taken the camp for at least one year, or other experience with the approval of the director.
Week 1 (June 3-7) is the int/adv camp and we will concentrate on teaching the basics of racing. Then, we will have practices on Tuesday evenings and Sunday afternoons. If the racer can’t make it to all the practices they can attend as many as possible to be able to go to a regatta at the end of the summer! More details on that as time gets near. We will form a sailing team and go as a group!With practices on Sundays and Tuesdays it will allow the sailor to practice with experienced sailors and learn from them as well. This will also expose sailors to a bigger variety of boats than just the sunfish.The other 3 weeks of camp are going to be all ability levels. However, if the intermediate/advanced sailor can’t do the first week of camp they can still come to the practices on Tuesdays and Sundays and join the team!**Please note the changes from previous years: the day will end at 3:30. The cost is $250. Mohican Sailing Club members get a $50 member discount!
