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.


NEW! This camp is intended to familiarize younger campers with safety and sailing. Under the guidance of our experienced Sail Canada instructors, our youngest group of sailors will work towards developing a solid foundation of skills in their first step within the Sail Canada accreditation system.

Climbing aboard the stable Optimist dinghies, participants will gain enough confidence to sail and paddle their way around the protected waters of Toronto’s Inner Harbour. They will learn about boating safety, balance, boat control and other sailing specific skills.

Campers will also participate in sail-related games and activities in this fun and safe camp.

Program Outline:
Day 1 and 2 – Safety, responsibility, paddling, boat controls and games.
Day 3 and 4 – Getting from A to B. Nautical games and general sailing.
Day 5 – Island Day and “Optis on Tour”
