Nashville Sail Camp
Qualified instructors will teach boating safety, points of sail, boat parts, rigging, and basic maneuvering. The camp offers a basic level of sailing, focusing on the fundamentals while having a great time on the water. Along with sailing, your child will learn valuable problem solving and creative thinking techniques. Campers spend their days onshore and on the water and will come home with plenty of hands-on sailing experience!
All groups are coached by US Sailing certified instructors and assisted by camp counselors and junior counselors. All age groups sail each day and have swim time as well as camp crafts and games. Each day also includes lessons appropriate for each learning level. Campers are encouraged to participate in each level for multiple sessions within one season, or over a period of years.
