The core of the program is a morning camp – “Beach Class” (M-F) in which children learn tennis, golf, sailing and swimming, and participate in group events and field trips. Afternoons, evenings and weekends are used for private lessons, clinics, competitions and special events as well as races and clinics for adults.

We sail Optis, Sunfishes, Hobie Getaways, RS Visions & Typhoons.
