We are uniquely positioned on the river and have been teaching kids and adults to sail since 1979. This location and history of experience enables us to introduce kids to the freedom that comes when sailing. It also allows us to develop life skills through sport.
    Our sailing programs uniquely emphasize cultivating a love and respect for the water while mastering the art of harnessing the wind. At the heart of our culture is a growth mindset that permeates through our nurturing and encouraging environment.

    The Our Kids review of Nepean Sailing Club

    our take

    “The goal is not to sail the boat, but rather to help the boat sail herself.” The Nepean Sailing Club introduces would-be sailors to the sport of sailing, and helps them develop their sea legs. Time flies by as kids and adults develop sailing skills in a fun and very hands-on way. Their award-winning program focuses on creating a safe and collaborative environment where kids are encouraged and have the freedom to explore and try out what they are learning. The Nepean Sailing Club is Canada’s largest and they cater to every level of sailor. Their camps incorporate both water and land sports, all of which help develop interpersonal skills, teamwork, and individual goal-setting and achievement. Leadership is a large part of sailing, and the instructors at The Nepean Sailing Club are highly-qualified and empower their students to become leaders as well. The equipment is well-maintained and they have a large range of boats, along with state-of-the-art facilities.

    My two girls have attended NSC for a few years now. They have grown so much and what Shawn has done with the program has revolutionized what summer camp is. Our girls are signed up again and look forward to summer 2024!

Our dedicated team shares this passion and is committed to providing a supportive environment where every camper can flourish. We believe in the power of nurturing friendships and skills that will shape each child's future.
