Sailors NYC presents:

Sailing Camp

2018 Season

Teaching your present first mate and your future skipper

Why sailing?


There's an old saying: "I'm not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship". We believe it to be true. In addition to sailing skills, your child will learn and hone leadership, safety, planning, problem solving and team work skills. By getting them away from electronics they will also gain self-confidence, spatial awareness, learn to love the outdoors and become resourceful. Basically - everything they need to succeed in life. 

Why Sailors NYC?


Sailors NYC is offering the ONLY program in the New York Harbor that is instructed by USCG licensed instructors who are experienced in working with children and youth.  We teach sailing through a variety of fun and engaging activities that keep the teens excited for more.  At the end of a one week program the children will be able to qualify for the Qualified Crew Member Rank Certification. This certification is the foundation for future sailing certification your child will be able to obtain as they grow up.
