Sail Camp

Sail Camp 2023 is over.

Thank you to everyone who participated.  Have a great summer.  We’ll see you on the water.

Concord Sailing Center (CSC) invites old friends and new campers alike to join in on another great summer of sailing. Please fill out the registration forms as soon as possible after March 1 to reserve a place in the program. To maintain the highest quality of instruction possible, there is a limit to the number of campers that we can accept for each session and applications are considered on a first-come, first-serve basis. (Note: CYC members’ children and grandchildren are given registration priority until April 1st.) Cost of camp includes a variety of possible discounts and you will find that information listed below. Do not delay sending the application.


Follow the registration form link on this page and complete the form to register your camper. You will receive a confirmation email immediately. After manually confirming your information we will send you an invoice by email which you can pay by check or online. Instructions for online payments will be in the email. Payment will consist of a $50 non-refundable deposit due immediately and the balance of the payment due by May 21 (Parent Meeting). Registrations made after the Parent Meeting are not eligible for discounts. Registrations are not guaranteed until final payment is made. If all spots are full, we will start a waiting list, and priority will be given to those who have already paid in full. Paid registrations may be transferred to another camper, but no refunds are issued after May 21 unless a wait-listed camper can fill the slot.

Parent Volunteers will be required to check the calendar for available slots and specify their top two choices. Our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you to confirm your date and time.


Sail Camp is open to all children 8-16 years old. The only requirements are that they have an interest in sailing and MUST demonstrate the ability to swim 50 yards, using any stroke and without life jacket, in sailing clothing, including shoes. Sailing instruction is provided for beginners through advanced levels by US Sailing certified instructors. The instructors are assisted by Teaching Assistants and Volunteers from the Concord Yacht Club and UT Sailing Club. All off-water activities such as lunches, snacks, and afternoon games, are organized and supervised by our Shore Director. A fleet of Optimist, Fusion, Open Skiffs and Club420 sailboats are used for on-the-water sail training.


The 2023 Sail Camp is offering four, one-week sessions in June. Sail Camp hours are 9:00am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday. Please arrive each morning in sufficient time to sign in and allow everyone to have their temperature checked at the door.


Tuition rates are all-inclusive and we offer a variety of discount packages. This covers one week of instruction, refreshments, snacks, a camp T-shirt and a group photo. Campers must provide their own lunches.

Several discounts are available to reduce the total cost of enrollment. All discounts expire at the Parents’ Meeting unless paid in full prior to this time. Any fees paid after this time, including late registrations, are not eligible for discounts.

We welcome parents to assist us with on-shore support, boat maintenance, errands, general help, snack and lunchtime supervision, and afternoon activities. Parent Volunteers will receive a $40 discount off the tuition fees. We are asking parents that wish to volunteer to sign-up for a one half-day (4 hours) time slot per week for each camper they register. Parent volunteers are asked to check for available time slots on the Volunteers Page. Volunteers who are willing and able to come for more than a single slot are always welcome, but do not receive additional discounts.

CYC members receive a $40 discount off the tuition fee for each child or grandchild registered in the program.

“Junior Members” are any campers who participated in a CSC program within the last year, such as Sail Camp, Youth Sailing, High School Sailing or Sea Scouts.  Junior Members receive a $40 discount off of each session.

Campers also receive a $40 discount for each additional session they register for. This discount applies to their second (and third) sessions.

Upgrades for 2023!
