Join Hampton Yacht Club for an amazing summer of legendary sailing adventures! This is knot your typical sailing camp. We incorporate sailing with marine science and fun; play on-the-water games like Quidditch, Tennis Ball Tag, Turbo Basketball, Highway and more! Every first Friday we host a Pirate Day, where sailors get to dress like pirates and go on a sailing scavenger hunt to find the pirate treasure. During each session, we will have a Parent Day where parents are encouraged to come watch what their child has learned throughout the camp, and of course take pictures! After completing each course, sailors are sent home with a card showing which goals they have accomplished throughout the course.
Campers will start their day at HRA and will travel by HRA bus to the Hampton Yacht Club in Hampton, where the sailing program will take place. Campers will then return by bus to HRA for dismissal to parents or to eat their lunch and take part in our afternoon program. Each camper should be prepared with a bag lunch, water bottle, towel, approved personal flotation device and sunscreen. Water shoes and bathing suits are suggested.
