Welcome to the CSA
Junior Sailing Camp

We are very excited and looking forward to another successful camp. Our theme again this year will be “fun and adventure”. We will play many on the water games like Siamese Twins, Rubber Ducky Tag, Buzkashi, Capture the Flag, and more. Since the LDV (Long Distance Voyage) was such a success, we’ll do it again this year. We’ll also have many off the water games like Steal the Bacon, Scavenger Hunt, Minute to Win It, and some exciting new ones. Don’t forget about all of the awesome food that camp has to offer. We can’t wait for some of Ms. Laura’s fruit pizza and our fantastic picnic lunch catered all the way to Allen Branch.

Once again we will camp on the CSA grounds with adult supervision. Whether it’s your child’s first or fifth time to attend camp, it’s a great way to meet other children their age and enjoy the sport of sailing. All activities are fully insured, and supervised by Certified US Sailing Instructors who are qualified in CPR and first aid. We also have a doctor on staff 24 hours per day to attend to any scrapes or bruises.

We will end the week with the annual Firecracker Regatta. This CSA tradition is a fun way for your child to finish camp and show a thing or two about what they learned throughout the week.

Lots planned for Juniors in 2018

In addition to Junior Sail Camp, CSA is planning lots of fun programs for juniors. More information will be coming.
Have a look…

STEM Activities: Because sailing is really about science and math. We combine classroom and on-the-water experiences. Learn about wind, buoyancy, water, and water quality, how to sail and much more! US Sailing's Reach platform creates an opportunity for first time sailors an on-ramp to the sport for youth of all backgrounds.

Kinder Sail Camp: This camp is designed to give children, ages 5 to 7 years old, the chance to experience the thrill of the outdoors, the lake and sailing. It will be a great primer for enrolling in Pram Adventures in the coming years. This will be an open event on any given weekend as demanded.

Pram Adventures: This is a program for first timers, beginning sailors, and those who want learn at their own pace. Low stress instruction will emphasize time in the boat, fun sailing, and games. Older students are encouraged to be volunteers in what will be a pre-curser to getting their US Sailing Instructor’s certification.

Harbor Mice: Join youth ages 8-14 for 6 Sundays of. Students learn to sail on two types of sailboats, Open Bics and Optimist Prams. Both boats are ideal for kids learning to sail and to race.

Salty Dawgs: Harbor Mice is scheduled for Sundays, and Salty Dawgs is on Saturdays with matching weekends. They are priced to encourage families to come out on Saturdays to cook out, socialize, camp overnight, and sail on Sunday. Salty Dawgs will be more about having fun than performing practice drills. There will be a Best Salty Dawg costume competition, and the winners will be presented with awards during the annual banquet.

Team Racing: The focus will be on advanced racing tactics for juniors. The pace will be quickened and the instruction will be more grueling. At a higher level of expertise in boat handling and knowledge of rules, the excitement and fun will be at its best. The goal is to graduate students who are well schooled and prepared to compete in collegiate sailing.

Regattas: There are a number of regattas scheduled for this year with plenty of opportunities for young sailors to participate. A spring Snipe regatta will offer 4 skippers and 4 crews to sail in a junior division. The Strawberry Shortcake Regatta is back, but I can’t tell you much about it because boys are excluded from some of the activities. Whale of a Sail may be an option if we are invited back again. Finally, there will be the Fall Laser Regatta at the end of the year.
