Volunteer Opportunity (All Hands On Deck!!!)

The BYC Junior Sail Camp is an ALL volunteer event, so we could use YOUR help!

It is crucial to the success of camp to have the help of our volunteers as we launch and retrieve over 40 boats 4 times a day, prepare and clean-up meals for 50 – 70 sailors and volunteers, provide sailing instruction and staff safety boats.  Even if you can only help for one afternoon, it will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your summer.  Add a note on your sailor’s application for the times you can lend a hand.  Adult volunteers attend without charge and are welcome to participate in all meals and activities

Galley Information:

Each sailor should bring something to eat on Tuesday evening as there is no formal dinner on Tuesday.  

Included in the camp fee are all meals and snacks Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and breakfast and lunch on Saturday.  Each sailor should bring a refillable water bottle for use during activities. In addition to filling out the appropriate medical forms, sailors with food allergies or special dietary needs should contact the camp director to make accommodations if necessary.

A Sailor’s Day:

A day at sail camp includes 2 to 3 sessions of instruction over areas like safe boating skills, basic sailing skills, good sportsmanship, and racing techniques presented through a combination of on the water and on shore activities.  Junior sailors will be under adult supervision always both on and off the water.

For all sailing activities the sailors are placed into groups based on their sailing level.  Sunfish are used for the beginner and intermediate sailors and Lasers for the advanced group.  Beginning sailors are placed on boats with a partner and switch between being the skipper and crew.

As always, we have planned several fun on shore activities, including many of our tried and true favorites from past camps and a couple of new ones.  Also, a Thursday night campfire, and Friday evening party.  Come prepared to use more than just your sailing skills!   Parents you should plan on attending our Awards Ceremony right after lunch on Saturday. Lunch is planned for noon.  

Dry-docked Boats:

If you have, or know of, an unused Sunfish and/or Laser sailboat, we could put them to good use during camp.  Also, any power boats that could be used as a teaching platform and/or safety boat are always of great help.  Contact the camp directors for more information and docking instructions.


We’ll see you in June! If you have any questions do not hesitate to call, text or e-mail.
