  • JAMESTOWN SEA ADVENTURE CAMP, AGES 11-16

    Price: $310 Per Child

    Arts and crafts projects are interspersed into camp each day. Periodically, there will be lunchtime speakers. Speakers will present topics that are marine science, sailing, or maritime environment-related. Lunchtime speakers will last 20-45 minutes and many will be hands on programs. Please contact Meg if you have an idea for a speaker or are able to volunteer to be a speaker - CISFSailing@gmail.com

    Details: Children will sail 13' Hobie Wave catamarans. The boats are super fun, stable, and great learning platforms. Kids will learn to sail and explore the Bay in groups of three - five aboard each boat with an Instructor. Instructors are US Sailing Level One certified.

    Children will learn the basics of sailing in a controlled and safe environment. Instructors will teach the following:
    - Wind direction
    - Parts of the boat
    - Rigging
    - Knots
    - Points of sail
    - Tacking
    - Gybing
    - Basic boat care

    Children will take turns doing each job on the boat, so that they will each experience and hopefully learn the skills of steering the boat, as well as, trimming the sails.

    This is an introductory boating class - no prior experience is necessary or expected. Those with prior sailing experience are also welcome and will find sailing Hobie Waves extremely fun! Children will leave camp feeling comfortable on the water and with much more knowledge of what's happening on and under the water. (More lessons are recommended before children should be allowed to sail by themselves.)

    Campers in this age group with sailing experience, or those who are looking for more experience, may be allowed to sail without on instructor on board. Autonomy in this way builds confidence and leadership, as well as sailing skills. Sailing without an instructor on board is at the discretion of the sailing instructors. Not all 'solo' sails will be successful, meaning some may end in a capsize. In terms of safety, there is always a powerboat on the water to help. Campers are briefed about capsizing and have experienced capsizing before being allowed to sail solo. Capsizing can be a valuable learning experience, and to be honest, is pretty fun.

    All marine education lessons are hands-on. Campers will investigate life in Narragansett Bay through in-depth explorations. Children will investigate the three main marine environments - a sandy beach, a rocky shore and a salt marsh - all present at Fort Getty. Campers will discover what types of crabs, fish, invertebrates, birds and other animals live along our coastline.  A typical day will include cool marine &/or environmental science lessons followed by first-hand explorations of various marine habitats.  There will also be games, activities, arts & crafts throughout the day.

    Children can join Jamestown Sea Adventure Camps for one week or more. Curriculums are adjusted weekly, so that each week of camp caters to the interests of the group.

    You will receive an e-mail confirmation of your registration confirming the week(s) of camp you selected immediately after registering. If you do not, please contact Meg Myles at CISFSailing@gmail.com.
