  • Second session:  June 7- June 11 **CAMP IS FULL!

*a non-refundable deposit of $150 is required with application, and counts toward the total price of camp. Total cost for camp is $300 ($350 for non-members).

We are offering an early bird discount of $50 for families who register and pay their deposit before April 15, 2021. Registration for camp will close May 20, 2021.

Camp will run from 9am-4pm Monday-Friday. In each session students will learn basic fundamentals of dinghy sailing using the US Sailing “Start Sailing Right” program. We will be sailing on a variety of small sailboats and campers will be placed into a beginners or intermediate group according to age and/or experience.

There will be a Camp Orientation at Shreveport Yacht Club on Sunday before each session.

  • First session: May 30, 2-4 pm
  • Second session: June 6, 2-4 pm
  • Third session: June 13, 2-4 pm

Parent(s) and campers will both attend Camp Orientation. Parent(s) come as you are, campers will need swimsuits, PFDs, and the shoes they plan to wear for camp. Campers will do a mandatory swim test while a parent/ guardian attends an informational meeting. If you are unable to attend, the camper will be required to come early Monday morning to complete his/her swim test.
