BSC Junior Sailing Camp offers beginner, intermediate, and advanced/racing courses for kids looking to advance their sailing skills in Optimists, Lasers, and Club 420 sailboats. Sailing Camp is designed to allow sailors ages 8 to 17 to become acquainted with sailing and the basics of racing. Sailors will get hands-on experience rigging, steering, maneuvering around docks and around a course, tying knots, and learning about weather and boating safety. Sailing Camp will start at 2:00 pm on Friday, June 5 and conclude with a family lunch and awards ceremony at noon on Sunday, June 7, 2020. We require that parents of all junior sailors work at least one shift at camp.  An email with a link to sign up for a shift will be sent to you upon registration. The cost for this 3 day event covers meals, entertainment, instructors’ fees, and t-shirt. Priority will be given to family members of BSC members. Deadline for priority registration is April 6, 2020. Registration will open to non-members on April 7, 2020. After May 15, 2020, an additional late fee of $50 will apply to all registrations. Contact information for participants will be sent to all parents prior to camp in order to facilitate carpooling. Each participant must wear a US Coast Guard Approved life jacket that fits and shoes or strap-on sandals which can be worn in and around the water.

Prerequisite skills needed for each level:


No Prior boating experience required.

Must be able to swim unassisted for 25 yards and tread water for 2 minutes.


In addition to the above:

Should know basic names of boat parts.

Be able to steer boat away from and back to the dock under sail alone.


In addition to the above: Should know the basic right of way rules. Should know how to get out of the NO GO ZONE (irons). Should have a desire to learn more about sailing through racing.

The program is very flexible as to which group the Juniors begin in. As skill levels progress, the Junior will be offered a chance to move to or visit another level. Each level will review skills of prior levels and focus on developing skills through games, demonstrations, and drills both on and off the water throughout the camp.
