LNYC Sail Camp has a long history of teaching youth (ages 8 - 19) how to have fun and how to sail! We hosted our first youth sail camp in 1971. Many of our original youth sailors return with their children and many of the parents of our early sailing programs return as grandparents to support this community sailing program.
It really does take a village to run LNYC Sail Camp. Our camp is supported by a tremendous number of volunteers that do an amazing number of jobs during the week. Tasks range from sailing instructor, to committee boat official. If you don’t know how to sail, that’s no problem! Many of our volunteer jobs do not require any sailing experience at all. For example, volunteers also run the registration table, ensure that the ice box is full, that the trash cans are emptied, that opti sailors have assistance pulling their boats up on the beach each day. Volunteers also make lemonade for the sailors & replenish soap / towels in the kitchen and bathrooms. Volunteers also organize evening events, which include movies in the Pavilion, duck boat races, and game night. There are more volunteer jobs than you can imagine...and there are tasks that are perfect for you! Check here for a summary list of volunteer tasks.
Previous camp experience is not necessary. All is required is a community spirit and a desire to make the camp a pleasurable experience. It is this community spirit that keeps LNYC Sailing Camp affordable. It is also this community spirit that helps our camp to be a family oriented camp like no other!
Please note that, as stated in the LNYC Sailing Camp Rules, children (under 18) must have a guardian (parent, grandparent, friend of parent, etc.) on the premises during camp at all times.
We look forward to seeing you and your camper on June 12-16, 2017 at LNYC! If you have any questions (camping, prices, rules, registration), please check out the links below. Otherwise feel free to contact us at LNYCSailCamp@gmail.com
