What is Schooner Camp?
In the Summer of 2011, DC Sail began offering a week-long Sailing and Marine Studies program to youth ages 12 to 18. The 5 day camp, which will take place on the American Spirit, aims to educate students on subjects pertaining to Sailing on a Schooner, Seamanship, Local History and Marine Science with a focus on local flora and fauna.
Students will come aboard DC's only schooner and take over! They will be responsible for all crew responsibilities and will learn each day the skills necessary to sail a 65 ft. schooner, including piloting, navigating, crew coordination, and more! By the end of the week, students will have the experience and skills to crew aboard the American Spirit.
This year, DC Sail is offering 2 weeks of Schooner Camp beginning the week of June 24th. Sign up now to register your child for a week of Schooner Camp this summer.
