Wheels in the Wind Youth Sailing Camp

July 30 - August 3

We're partnered with our friends at the Community Sailing Center to offer a one-week camp for kids ages 12-16 that gets them on two wheels and out on the water.

Campers will spend the mornings practicing city riding, exploring on the bike path, and experimenting on local mountain bike trails. Then they'll spend the afternoons learning the basics on dinghy sailing on Lake Champlain.

Scholarships are available!
