Summer Sailing Camp
Your child can spend an exciting week learning to sail on the Downtown Norfolk Waterfront!
Our fun, hands-on camps include water and shore-based activities led by our certified instructors. Your child will experience the Elizabeth River in a whole new way while learning the principles of sailing and water safety. Our Harbor 20s are safe and ideal performance sailboats that are perfect for any type of sailor, and can hold up to four campers. Each boat will have a certified instructor on board to provide a more personalized learning experience for each student.
Summer Camp 2020 dates and registration coming soon.
Sail Quest (ages 8-15): $275*
Our award-winning flagship summer camp, Sail Quest, is back for another exciting year! Sail Quest is a hands-on sailing and maritime science camp. Students will learn the basics of sailing a small keelboat, including boat rigging, water safety, confidence and teamwork. Students will participate in various land-based activities focusing on river ecology, maritime science, and STEM, while using the many resources of the Nauticus campus to complement their sailing knowledge. Sail Quest is a beginner sailing camp, so no experience is required!
Sail Voyagers (ages 10-15): $325*
Sail Voyagers is an advanced sailing camp, for students who have prior sailing experience, or who have attended a Sail Quest camp with us in the past. Campers will learn more advanced sailing techniques, including being able to cruise safely in local waters and planning their own voyage. They will refine their skills learned in Sail Quest, while also learning reefing, docking, anchoring, and man over board drills. While on land, campers will learn chart reading, plotting, coastal navigation skills, and the concepts of currents and how they function. They will also learn the important role of tides and weather and how to predict them in order to help plan their own sailing expedition. We will be using iPads and Promethean Boards to access up-to-date maritime technology and facilitate learning these important skills.
