Kids Summer Sailing Camp

Ages: 7-15
Schedule: Weekly (Monday-Friday) 1:00PM – 5:00PM
Cost: $400.00 per child per session

The 5:1 student-to-instructor ratio in our Sailing Camp can’t be beat, and kids won’t need a wetsuit due to the stability of our Capri 22’ keelboats. All of our camp instructors have gone through training to create the safest environment for sailors, and our staff includes US Coast Guard Captains and certified instructors. Over the course of five days, campers will feel more confident at the helm and obtain skills that they will be able to use for the rest of their lives. Finally, Friday is race day! Campers apply what they’ve learned during the week and work as a team to win.


To ensure a personalized experience, our sailing camp students are placed into groups of no more than 5 per instructor. Each group sets sail on their own safe and stable 22 ft sailboat with a qualified instructor on board at all times. Our sailing camp includes dock side and on-the-water instruction. Your child will learn basic sailing techniques, nautical terminology, crew overboard rescue maneuvers, basic knots, and rules of the road.


Age: All campers must be between the ages of 7-15 on the first day of camp.

Clothing and Extras: The best way to prepare for sailing is to dress in layers. We also suggest a backpack to carry extra gear such as hats, beach towels, lip balm, sunscreen, water, snacks, and sunglasses. Closed-toe shoes are required.

Food: We suggest that campers eat a full lunch at least 30 minutes before the start of camp. 

Important: Sailing Camp starts at 1:00pm sharp. Pick-up is at 5:00pm next to Snack Shack’s concrete benches. Please be on time for all drop-offs and pick-ups.

All campers receive a custom-designed t-shirt unique to each year of camp.

Beyond Summer - After School Sailing

The Santa Barbara Sailing Center offers a unique After School Sailing program. At the end of the school day, it’s time to get out of the house and enjoy fresh air and healthy fun out at sea.
