Join us for a fun-filled session of waterfront activity!

Overview
If you want a session of variety, this program is for you. You’ll live with campers your own age who are interested in boating too. We’ll slice through the water with these speedy boats.

Windsurfing: Hit the water in this exciting sport. A certified instructor will teach you the basics, and help you to master the skills of windsurfing. The wind will propel you across Sealth’s waterfront.

Sailing: Harness the wind to send you across the water. Try out our day sailor or catamaran with a crew of your friends. We’ll teach you the basics of sailing, as well as fast maneuvers and speed.

For more information, contact our program staff at 206 463 3174, ext. 44.

Requirements
There are several things you can do to prepare for camp. First, do some moderate exercise – including your arms – to be ready for carrying equipment, hanging onto sails, etc. You will need to pass a swim check when you get to camp. You must be able to comfortably swim 20 yards with and without wearing a life jacket, and tread water for 15 seconds. You’ll also be taught and need to pass a basic capsize drill for each boat you use. You do not need prior experience in the boat to pass the drill.

In order for us to ensure a safe session for your camper, he or she must pass the swim check. If they do not, they will need to be transferred to another program.

Packing List
All participants should bring the following items in addition to the things listed in the regular packing list. It is not necessary that these items be new. Old or borrowed items are best:
* Warm sleeping bag+ – you’ll be living in teepees (and an extra blanket, if needed)
* Warm jacket+ – not down or cotton; wool, synthetic fleece or polartec work much better
* Rain gear+
* Extra shoes to get wet to wear on boats and water (sandals, tennis shoes, or aqua socks work)
* A small backpack (day pack) or dry bag – to carry any necessities on the boats
* Sunglasses
* Sunscreen (15 SPF or higher) and lip balm with sunscreen
* Hat with a brim
* Two water bottles with tight-fitting lids

+We have a very limited supply of these items for campers to borrow. If you know your camper will need to borrow an item please call camp to reserve one.
