Alamitos Bay Yacht Club Summer Sailing Camp

Alamitos Bay Yacht Club offers a summer sailing camp for ages 8-18. Participants learn to rig their own sailboat, sail on their own, and eventually participate in a race. They also learn how weather, wind, and sailboats work.

On days with no wind, there will be beach activities like capture the flag and paddle boarding for the kids to socialize with their new friends.

Sailors will learn to sail in Alamitos Bay in “Sail Cubes,” a plastic version of the Optimist. They will graduate to the ‘Optimist’, a one-person boat for children under the age of 15.  Classes will also be offered in the ‘Club Flying Junior’ (a two-person boat for teens), and the ‘Laser’ (a one-person boat for teens).

  • Session 1: June 17-28
  • Session 2: July 1-12
