Sound Explorers

Ages 9-12

Spend a half day learning to sail on the New Haven Harbor and half of the day exploring the coastline of the Long Island Sound. We sail Funboats, Picos and 420s, and our outstanding instructors do a great job challenging your camper at their level, whether they are a beginner or a returning camper.


This program is offered in one week sessions for flexibility with your summer needs. We suggest attending two one week consecutive sessions if possible to have a more in depth sailing experience. However one week sessions will still provide a great intro or continuing experience for your camper.  

Keep in mind, the land portion of the program runs on a repeating two week curriculum. For example, if you attend Week 1 and Week 2 (or Week 1 and Week 4), the program will follow the two week curriculum. If you attend Week 1 and Week 3 of camp, the activities will be the same. In addition, campers are limited to a maximum of two weeks of camp.
