Due to safety precautions in light of COVID-19, this year’s Summer Camps have been cancelled.


Ages 6–8

This camp is intended to familiarize younger campers with safety and sailing.

Under the guidance of our experienced Sail Canada Instructors, campers will work toward developing a solid foundation of skills in the 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 on land sail-related games and activities.

No experience required
