All participants in our marine programs are provided with a Personal Floatation Device (PFD).  Proper use of the PFD is strictly enforced. Participants are welcome to use their own Canadian approved PFDs if they have them.

A sailing camp resource guide with more information will be available prior to the start of camp.

Taught by our experienced Sail Canada certified instructors, this two-week course will have campers navigating Toronto’s Inner Harbour in comfortable, easy-to-sail dinghies, all the while learning about water and boat safety, boat control, knots, rigging, capsizing and other topics relevant to developing young sailors. The curriculum is based on Sail Canada standards and campers will work toward earning internationally recognized certificates for each level by demonstrating skills learned in the program.

Prerequisite: iCANSail certification is recommended, but not essential. Suitable for first-time sailors.

Certificate: Successful candidates will receive a recognized CANSail certificate.

Ages: Campers will be grouped into Junior and Senior categories on the first day of camp.
