Kids seem naturally drawn to the water. They love to dig in a sandy beach, frolic in the waves, and swim for hours. Why not give your child an even more amazing experience and get them out on the water? Not just mucking about along the sandy shore, but out on the vast open ocean. Talk about making memories!
The Burrard Yacht Club Summer Camps get kids aged 9 – 16 years out on the water for a week at a time. Sailing instruction is provided in a fun, safe and inclusive manner. And the Canadian Yachting Association certification is available upon successful completion of the program.
Talk about an amazing deal! The Burrad Yacht Club Summer Camp is an unbelievably good deal! For just $200 your child gets 5 days of sailing experience. The camps run Monday – Friday from 9am – 4pm…and all that water & sailing experience for such a great price. I can’t get over it! As soon as word gets out these camps are going to fill up FAST. You can access the summer camp application form here.
If your child has sailing experience, please give the Burrard Yacht Club a call at 604-988-0817 ext #2. They will let you know which level it is best to enrol your chid. CANsail Level 1 & 2 are $200 per week; CANsail Level 3 & 4 are $380 for two weeks.
Don’t forget parents: you need to dress your kids in appropriate clothing (shoes that can get wet but not open-toed shoes such as Tevas or sandals permitted; pack a change of clothes, a rain jacket, and lunch; sunglasses and sunscreen are recommended). And the Friday of every camp week is Hot Dog Day, so you can skip packing a lunch on the last day. Camp participants are also required to provide their own approved life jacket.
