You must have sailed on Black Jack earlier in 2018, 2017 or 2016 to be eligible for this voyage.
You know the crew and you've been in the 1000 Islands. You know a little bit about the places you could see and visit. On day one, you and the crew chart the way for adventure, planning the things you want to do this week.
Black Jack Adventure Camp welcomes youth 12-14 to sail a tall ship in a small group, team building environment. You will learn about sailing, wind direction and compasses but you will also meet new friends and have new adventures. Each camp starts with icebreaker games and a safety orientation session. You will spend your first day learning about the ship and visit the Aquatarium, a marine discovery centre in Brockville where you can try out the high ropes course (good practice for unfurling sails) and sleep either in the planetarium or beside the otter exhibit. You will learn to sail, row and steer a 26' Navy Whaler and set sail for the 1000 Islands on the 87' Black Jack. Daily mug ups and sail training check in's ensure a solid social scene and learning opportunities for all.
Thursday pick ups are after the work day, around 6pm. Allowances may be made.
