Sail Camp 2023
In 2023 our Sail Camp runs from Sunday 24th July to Friday 28th July, and is open to 8-14 year who are able to camp on site for the week and participate in sailing training and associated fun activities. Sail Camp is a wonderful opportunity for member's children to have fun, develop friendships and improve their sailing skills.
This year the booking window for Sail Camp will be from the start of May until 5pm on 31st May. All bookings received in this period will be provisional, pending final allocation.
Allocation of spaces will take place at the start of June, and you will be contacted by email to confirm whether your child has a place on the camp. This is a very popular activity and If at the end of May we are oversubscribed, we will contact those members who were unsuccessful to arrange refunds of Sail Camp fees and also to discuss alternate training opportunities. We will try to fit as many in as possible, but there are limits to the overall capacity of the camp partly due to health and safety and also to ensure the right instructor to child ratios are maintained.
The charge for this year's Sail Camp will be £210 per child & £60 if you need to hire a boat.
Before submitting your booking please read the following:-
1. Sail Camp is primarily for the children of members member's children will be given priority when allocating spaces.
2. Children will be expected to be able to camp in small group tents along with other children for the duration of their stay. They will be based at the Club's campsite and will usually be in groups of three or four of their own age. The camping activity provides a fantastic opportunity for children to develop friendship groups across the Club, which will help support their future participation in sailing. Please consider this carefully if your child is not comfortable camping.
3. Sail Camp is run entirely by volunteers if you are booking a child onto Sail Camp, you will need to commit to at least 12 hours of volunteer duty for each child, to take place across an 8-hour period on the Monday to Thursday of sail camp. These duties might include helping in the kitchen, cleaning or supervising the campsite and are vital for the running and enjoyment of sail camp for the children. Please consider carefully if you are able to commit the time before booking.
4. During Sail Camp, the campsite is exclusively used for Sail Campers and volunteer Sail Camp helpers. To maintain safeguarding for all of the children adults will not be able to stay at the site during Sail Camp week.
If you are allocated a place at Sail Camp, we will be in touch with further information regarding necessary equipment, timings, volunteering and also to seek information about your child's dietary and camping preferences.
