Annually in June
The South Carolina Maritime Museum offers two Youth Sailing Camps for youth: Opti Sailing Camps for ages 8-14 and 420 Sailing Camps for ages 12-18.
The purpose of these camps, taught by U.S. Sailing Certified Level 1 instructors, is to be fun while focusing on safety and learning sailing skills.
Each camp consists of five, half-days of sailing instruction, beginning on Monday and ending on Friday. There are 6-10 campers per session. Campers in the younger group sail Optimist Prams, a sailboat designed specifically for kids under 16 years of age. Older campers sail the 420 sailboats designed for people their age.
The registration fee for both camps includes a U.S. Sailing course book, a skills logbook and a camp T-shirt.
