Jamestown Sea Adventure Camp

CISF runs a sailing and marine education summer camp called Jamestown Sea Adventure Camp based out of Fort Getty in Jamestown, RI. There are camp weeks for children ages 4-16 at a variety of times. Camps are one week long. Children learn sailing basics and are introduced to all aspects of the marine environment. No week of camp is the same, so attending multiple weeks of camp is common. No sailing experience is necessary to participate.
