In our two-week CANSail 1 - Individual Sailing Program there is an emphasis on fun, safety and fundamental skill acquisition. Participants will sail by-themselves on a small single-handed type of boat called a SailCube or Optimist Dinghy. Perfect vessels for first-time sailors!

In this program participants are introduced to basic sailing concepts through fun and interactive lessons. No prior sailing experience required!

Our Sail Canada certified instructors teach participants the skills required to skipper their own boat, including:

  • Boat Balance & Straight-Line Steering
  • Identifying Wind Direction
  • Boat Safety
  • Knot Tying
  • Sailing Terminology
  • And More!

Campers in this program work towards achieving their CANSail 1 sailing level, but our main goal is to get campers comfortable on the water and having fun in boats!



Character Development: This program helps build the following traits

  • Independence: Learning to sail develops independence on so many levels. Participants learn how to set up their boat before they sail, how to care for the boat's equipment and how to steer and chart their own course both literally and figuratively. There is no better way to grow confidence than getting in a boat!
  • Resilience: Sailing involves constant adaptation - to the direction of the wind, the push of the current and the course you're on. Sailors learn resilience in coping with and adapting to the ever-changing conditions they face on the water. No two days in a boat or in our program are the same!
