Welcome to Columbia Sailing Club!

We are excited about this year's Columbia Sailing Club (CSC) Youth Sail Camp for youth ages 7 to 18. Our summer camps are open to the public, you don’t have to own a boat and you don’t have to be a member!

Camps fill up quickly and reservations are on a first come first serve basis. Each camp is limited to 16 children which is a 4 to 1 ratio for instructors. Our camps offer sailing instructions for beginners using single sailor Optimist or Sunfish boats. New this year is a session for sailing 420s for sailors whom have had previous sailing experience and meet the required height and weight restrictions for that class of boat. You may sign up for more than one camp.

UPDATE: Sail Camps have sold out for 2016!!! For information on future camps please continue to check back at our website.
