Youth Summer Sailing Camps

The Glenmore Sailing Club offers accessible, affordable sailing camps for youth in the heart of Calgary. These camps include land-based and on-the-water education in the Optimist sailboat. One of the most popular sailboats for youth, the Optimist is easy to learn and sail, even for the youngest child. It is also the largest racing class in the world. We are pleased to offer four Sail Canada accredited CanSail programs this summer, all taught by Sail Canada accredited instructors.

Wet Feet (ages 5-7) is an introduction to sailing especially for this age group. Children will learn about sailing boats, water safety, and fundamental movement and balance skills. This program is a half-day program and will be offered in both the morning and afternoon.

Can Sail 1 (ages 8-13) is a full-day introductory program with a focus on fun, safety, and basic sailing skills.

CanSail 2 (ages 8-13) is a full-day program that progressively builds and develops the skills learned in the CanSail 1 program with a focus on keeping the sailor engaged with appropriate challenges and learning. Completion of Cansail 1 is required for this program.

CanSail 3+ (ages 9-14) is a full day program with an introduction to racing. Completion of Cansail 2 is required for this program.

Our Camp Package can be found here. This package contains more specific details of our programming. It should be reviewed by all registrants.

Registration for 2018 Sailing Camps will be online early in 2018.
