Sailing Camp offered by Grove Sailing Club

The Coconut Grove Sailing Club (CGSC) is offering Summer Youth Sailing Instruction and Camp for both CGSC members and non-members. Student sailors will be classified as either beginner, intermediate, advanced or racing level. A US Sailing certified instructor and several junior instructors will supervise the classes. 

Sailing Camp runs weekdays from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm and is held rain or shine. Campers must be between the ages of 6 and 14. 

Beginners will learn basic sailing skills, knots, nomenclature, and safety. By the end of the course, beginning sailors will be able to single-hand a pram boat, know the names of all parts of the boat, and know what to do if the boat capsizes. Intermediate and advance sailors will learn more advanced techniques, racing rules, and explore further into Biscayne Bay. 

Summer Campers will be sailing in the Sailing Club's Prams, Optimist and Sunfish. These single-handed and double- handed boats are used for pleasure sailing as well as competition. Sailing small boats is an incredible way to learn sailing, teaching students independence and creating a stronger, more individual character while learning a new sport and building camaraderie with fellow sailors. Most important, being responsible for your own boat teaches lessons that stay with kids forever. 

There will be five two-week sessions.

Session 1 - June 9 - 20 
Session 2 - June 23 - July 3 
Session 3 - July 7 - 18 
Session 4 - July 21 - August 1 
Session 5 - August 4 - 15 

Camp Cost Per two-week Session - Club Member $445; Non-Member $535. Simply turn in one form per child whom you wish to register via email, fax or snail mail with the adequate payment.

Applications are available in the Club office, or email Adriana Gonzalez: adrianagonzalez@cgsc.org. Applicants are accepted on a first come-first serve basis.
