Using Lasers, Holders, Hobie Cats, and Keelboats, blast your way through an Advanced Sailing Summer Camp. This program will cover areas in rigging, sail trim, boat handling, and racing. These skills will be archived on the water with a week of sailing drills, games, and races.

Due to COVID-19, all 2020 Aquatic Center camps are cancelled.

We regret to inform all our summer camp families that we will not be able to hold our traditional Summer Camp programming, as you know them.  All campers who already register will receive a full refund. The Aquatic Center staff is looking into alternative youth programming that will be complaint with the CDC and Sacramento County.  Respecting the 6 foot social distancing and the safety of our families and clients.  Please check back for more information and guidelines for boat rentals and small group lessons and future youth programming.​

At the end of the week, an optional practical and written test will be given to all the students. Those interested who pass the exam will be eligible to rent sailboats from the Aquatic Center (parents must sign a release and are responsible for all equipment rented from the aquatic center).
