Default Summer Kids Sailing Camps?

Hello,

Going to spend some extended time up at the lake this summer and are looking around for a kids (Ages 8/9) sailing day camps in the lakes region.

Looking for entry instruction for 1 to 2 weeks non-sleep overů where they learn the basics on how to sail. (Both are proficient swimmers)

Anyway, I reached out to the Meredith Bay Sailing Association via e-mail but they never responded. Are they still doing such summer camps?

Anyone have any leads?

Thanks!

I am pretty sure the New Hampshire Boat Museum in Wolfeboro still has a sailing camp for kids. It is not overnight. I think it lasts a week.

Default Recap >Sailing

Had the kids over at the LWSC at Fays for the week and I must say I was impressed with the whole experience. They had a great time, learned a ton and were sailing solo by the end of the week. Granted, still beginners but great progress for young kids who never sailed.

Thanks again for all the help!
