ESA teaches small boat sailing at Indian Mound Park in Englewood, FL
Learning to sail can develop confidence, character and community among kids. They will be taught the basics of sailing and have fun with other kids as they team with a partner, each fulfilling their role in the sailing experience.
For some kids, learning to sail is fun and for some kids it becomes their passion.
There are three 2020 youth summer camps for ages 10-17
The cost is $150 per child (scholarships are available if needed)
The camps are Monday through Friday starting at 9 AM, ending at 3 PM
2020 Summer Camp Schedule
Youth Summer Camp I (Jul 6-10)
Youth Summer Camp II (Jul 13-17)
Youth Summer Camp III (Jul 27-31)
Youth ages 10 to 17
The student must be comfortable in the water and able to swim.
The student must be dropped off and picked up each day by a parent or guardian and signed in and out.
The camp starts with a basic swim check where each student demonstrates their ability to swim and climb aboard a boat.
For the first couple of days, two students are teamed with a coach who is an experienced sailor and who has completed our coaching clinic.
Note: The two students and one coach model may change during the coronavirus pandemic in order to maintain social distancing.
By the end of the week, kids are usually able to sail by themselves.
There is a family picnic on the Friday, after which students are invited to take family members sailing.
