Notes about camp levels: It is suggested to participate in 2 weeks of camp, regardless of having participated in previous years' camps. It is a good refresher and always good practice to get out on the water. Level 1 builds basic knowledge of sailing, boat terms, and the basics of sailing on and off the dock. Level 2 builds on this knowledge in a “putting it all together” style, and Level 3 takes it up a notch where sailing will occur down the Creek or in the Bay. 

Please contact Hannah at, if you are preparing to sign up for a Level 2 camp without having taken a Level 1 week of camp or Level 3 camp without having taken 1 and 2.
