The Quannapowitt Yacht Club Youth Sailing Program is a registered children’s summer day camp with the Town of Wakefield’s Board of Health. The sailing program enrolls students starting at 8 years of age and entering third grade to high school. This is a fun way to learn to sail with kids from different communities. We also offer advanced racing programs and participate in several regattas in Massachusetts.

We also offer “Try It” weeks for younger beginners – first time campers aged 8-11 may sign up for just the first week of any regular Sailing session.  The second week can then be added, if desired.

Camp hours are from 9AM to 4PM Monday through Friday.
