Sailing Camp


  • Co-Ed (Boys & Girls)
  • Ages 12 - 18 & Adult

Sailing Camps are geared towards the true adventurer! Learn to sail as you explore BC’s world famous Discovery Islands and Desolation Sound aboard one of our four 27’ Catalina sailboats. Each sailing camp is limited to 20 campers. Register today!

Week at a glance:
  • Day One includes instructions on land and on the water. We will cover basic sailing theory, knots, learning to row, as well as expectations and guidelines for the week.
    • Night one, campers will sleep in tents at our main campus location and set sail after breakfast.
  • Day Two we cast off the lines in the morning and embark on a week-long odyssey, sailing to a new location each day.
  • We will typically sail between 4-8 hours in the morning and afternoon, all while exploring the spectacular coastline, remote coves, lots of islands, and seeing the local wildlife. We often come across dolphins, whales, and sea lions!
  • We will arrive back at our main campus the day before camp ends.
  • The last day of camp you’ll have an opportunity to say goodbye to new friends and relive the week as we present a short slideshow from the week before catching the 11:00 am ferry to Campbell River.

Your adventure will include learning basic navigation and sailing skills all while exploring one of the most beautiful places on earth. You’ll also be able to relax, build relationships, and participate in discussions about the Good News of Jesus Christ!

Session DatesPacking List
Things to note:
  • We camp on shore in different wilderness locations each evening including small and large islands, the mainland, or even up a glacial inlet. At these destinations we may swim in secluded lakes, explore lagoons, take a short hike to a beautiful location, or play fun games around the campsite.
    • We set up our tents and campsite when we arrive on shore in the late afternoon. We then pack everything up the next morning. Sometimes we may stay 2 nights at a location if we are taking a day trip somewhere by boat.
  • Our campsites are usually quite remote with no amenities, allowing us to experience the natural beauty of Creation in full.
  • Breakfast will be on site daily prior, lunch will be on the boats and supper will be served on site after anchoring.
  • During the day on the water, we may stop and go for a swim, or all climb on a log floating in the ocean!

Sailing Camp Disclaimer
  • Due to some physical requirements of the program the participant must be able to efficiently walk on uneven, slippery surfaces while on a moving vessel and be able to effectively climb a 4 foot boarding ladder and to get on and off a boat unassisted.
  • It is recommended that participants be comfortable in and around water.
  • Training sessions will require short periods of upper body exertion, and a moderate level of arm strength. Participants will have the opportunity to experience sun, wind, spray, rain, and temperatures may be cooler than on land.
  • When underway the vessel may exhibit irregular motion due to wind and waves, which may or may not cause sea sickness.
  • No prior sailing or boating experience is required.
