Cruising Camps

The Sailing Academy offers exciting week long cruising camps for teens.

Join us this summer on the Chesapeake Bay!

The Chesapeake Bay is a perfect place to cruise on a yacht. Protected from ocean swells, great summer winds, waterfront towns to visit, protected anchorages and sandy beaches!

Cruising camps enable young people to have a unique adventure not found at a fixed location camp. Students have opportunities to:
  • Chart courses each day
  • Learn leadership skills
  • Practice teamwork
  • Handle the rigging on a yacht
  • Take the helm and navigate the Bay
  • Sleep aboard the yacht
  • Beach bonfires
  • Swimming
  • Help prepare meals in the galley
  • Catch blue crabs!
  • Fishing for Rockfish
