About the Camp

Right now, we have three Laser sailboats and can accept three campers per session. There is a chance we will acquire a fourth Laser in time for this summer’s camp.  Laser registration is for children 14-17 years of age. Exceptions to age will be made on a case-by-case basis considering weight, height, and sailing experience.

  • Camp sessions are 1/2 days, Monday – Friday.
  • Campers will sail Lasers.
  • Camp will be held at the SC Maritime Museum. Sailboats will put in at the City docks beside the museum.
  • There will be 3-4 campers per session.
  • Campers will learn and review the essentials of sailing at different camp levels depending on the experience and skill level of the camper.
  • Certified US Sailing Small Boat Level 1 Sailing Instructors Fred Hoelscher and Pete Collins will head up this year’s instructional team. The team will include experienced junior instructors and adult volunteers.
  • Registration fee includes a US Sailing course book, a skills logbook and a camp T-shirt. Returning sailors who show up with their text book and red skills log book from last year’s camp will receive a $10 gift certificate for the Museum gift shop.
