Nashville Sail Camp introduces children to the sport of sailing, sparking interest and developing skills in young sailors. Campers spend their days in a group of peers, with caring camp staff and certified instructors to learn to sail with plenty of hands-on sailing experience!
Our program is for all children ages 7-17 and is open to sailors of all skill level and experience. Campers must be comfortable in boats and have strong swimming skills. All campers are required to wear Lifejackets in and around the boats and water.
Qualified instructors will teach boating safety, points of sail, boat parts, rigging and basic maneuvering. The camp offers a basic level of sailing, focusing on the fundamentals while having a great time on the water. Along with sailing, your child will learn valuable problem solving and creative thinking techniques. Campers spend their days on shore and on the water, and will come home with plenty of hands-on sailing experience!
