  • Members in good standing may register their children; enter one registration for each participating child.
  • Children of non-member families may join the club as Youth Members and register for camp at a special combination rate. The registered youth sailor receives an individual youth membership at HMBYC valid for the balance of the calendar year.

    As youth members, they may then register for summer sailing camp at the member rates.

Learn to sail! This is a safe and fun way for kids ages 8 through 12 to learn how to sail in an Optimist dinghy. (An Opti is a very stable 1-person dinghy approximately 8 feet long.)

This class teaches basic sailing as well as developing confidence and seamanship. Although no experience is necessary, campers must be comfortable in the water while wearing a life jacket.

In our fun-filled camps, students will learn:
• Basic sailing skills, in their own boat
• Water safety skills
• How to read the wind
• Critical thinking skills, as they navigate a boat among a small group of other boats
• Teamwork, as they work in small groups to rig and sail boats

Camp is M-F from 8:30am to 3:30pm each day. Campers will need to bring their own lunches.

Sign up now—boat availability is limited and assigned based on early registration and experience.

Registration is not guaranteed until full payment is received, and liability/medical release form is signed & turned in to the office.
