WET FEET KIDS CAMP (Ages 7-9):

Welcome to our Junior Sailing programs. We are inspired to help your child get the most out of their sailing experience.

Our Wet Feet program is designed to teach your young sailor the fundamentals of sailing in a safe and fun environment. Taught by our Sail Canada certified instructors, campers will spend half the day sailing small dinghies, while the other half will be spent on land participating in activities such as understanding keelboat sailing with an instructor onboard, arts and crafts, games, and other activities related to sailing. Sailing in the protected waters of the Toronto Islands, your child will learn terminology, balance, basic boat handling, knots and increasing their confidence around the water. In addition to sailing the camp features weekly swimming, water activities, tennis and time to explore and learn from our island. Teamwork focused games and great camp activities give your child the opportunity to experience the very best summer camp has to offer, build their confidence under the supervision of experienced and trained counselors.
