Sailing Camps

Experience the Freedom of Wind

On Lake St. Croix, the mile-wide portion of river alongside which Camp St. Croix sits, our campers gain skills that can take them anywhere.

The First Mates program is designed to give an introduction to basic sailing skills and techniques on optimist-class boats. First Mates spend a portion of each day receiving sailing instruction and training, and the rest of their time participating in traditional camp activities.

Our Windjammers graduate to 420’s and a variety of keelboats, experiencing expert training in partnership with St. Croix Sailing School, a regionally renowned youth sailing academy, as well as getting the opportunity to sail for four days on the waters of Lake Superior, surrounding the Apostle Islands, through our partnership with Howl and Dreamcatcher Sailing in Bayfield, WI.
