My youngest son has been requesting to go to sailing camp for two years. This year I felt he was ready (he had not been a strong swimmer before, and that was my hesitation).
He signed up for the fill day Little Guppies program. It may have been the best camp of the summer, beating out his perennial favorite. Each morning they had a meeting followed by sailing to the south of Burlington, then lunch on shore with an afternoon...more

My son just completed camp at the Community Sailing Center and I cannot say enough about what a wonderful week he had. It was the last full week of the summer so I thought we'd have to drag him to camp but he had such a fun first day that he was raring to go each day, excited for that day's adventure.

My son has attended this camp for two summers in a row, and we look forward for him attending again. A fabulous program that gets kids out on the lake right away, learning sailing skills hands-on. If you have an only child, consider sending your kid with a friend, particularly if you live outside of Burlington. Great confidence builder and a wonderful skill for kids to know!

My 7 year old daughter attended this camp a couple weeks ago and LOVED it! She can't wait to go back again next year as a LEVEL 1. She swam everyday and sailed at least once a day but sometimes twice. By Friday she sailed in a small 2 person boat without an instructor. This will be the first camp we sign up for next summer!

My child has been attending this camp for a few years. He loves the Sailing Center. The instructors are very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The class was well organized and my son came away with memories of a great time sailing on Lake Champlain!

My son attended the Level I camp, but only for 1 day. He came home upset that he was bullied by two other camp participants. I spoke to his instructor on the phone and he confirmed this as well. After speaking with his instructor and the LCCSC management, they offered to move him into a Level II camp (he's had some sailing experience so this was logical). But my son did not want to move camps because he had made friends in his original class....more
