WYC Youth Foundation – Junior Sail Camps

Learn to sail this summer while building self-confidence, responsibility, teamwork, and respect for the environment! Our KinderSail program on Tuesday and Thursday evenings for ages 5-8 introduces sailing and basic skills so children have a positive sailing experience and develop comfort in the boats. In Adventure Sail (ages 8-17), beginners learn to rig and sail small boats in the protected waters of Waukegan Harbor, while experienced sailors hone their skills on Lake Michigan. Adventure Sail is available as a weekly half-day or full-day camp. Multiple-session discounts apply.

Our staff is certified in First Aid/CPR/AED, NASBLA Boating Safety and CDC Heads-up Concussion Training. Instructors are U.S. Sailing Level 1 certified, as well.  The program is based at Waukegan Yacht Club. Junior Sail, a program of the WYC Youth Foundation, has been “making sailors since 1966.” Join us for your #BestSummerEver!
