Our Summer Sea Camp is the core of our youth program, with two sessions scheduled for 2018: July 9th-20th and July 30 to August 10th.

A hands-on, two week summer camp, based at the historic Spaulding Marine Center in Sausalito, where your child (ages 11-15) will safely have fun and meet friends while learning big concepts empirically by sailing on the Bay, building wooden watercraft, and participating in watershed restoration. The camp will culminate with sailing our historic 48' sloop FREDA to Angel Island for a 3 day/2 night camp-out.
