The ultimate sailing camp for beginners to advanced sailors. The session begins with basic sailing techniques such as rigging the boat, tacking, jibing, docking, beaching, and safety procedures on our JY15 and Sunfish sailboats. Campers are taught by experienced instructors on Lake Kittamaqundi and also travel to Baltimore’s harbor where they sail with experts from Get Away Sailing. The novice sailors camp out at a local campground on the second Thursday of the 2-week session.
When they are not on the water, campers may also have the opportunity to sail on a Skipjack in Annapolis, visit sailing and nautical museums, swim at local swim parks and learn about the environment where we sail. For more information, visit columbiacamps.org
