The Glenmore Sailing Club offers accessible, affordable learn to sail camps for youth in the heart of Calgary.
By the end of the camp each child will have learned how to set up and sail a boat under the instruction of nationally certified instructors.
These camps include land-based and on-the-water education in the Optimist training sailboat. One of the most popular sailboats for youth, the Optimist is easy to learn and sail, even for the youngest child.
We are pleased to offer four Sail Canada accredited CanSail programs this summer, all taught by Sail Canada accredited instructors.
Wet Feet (ages 5-7)is an introduction to sailing specially aimed at this age group. Children will learn about sailing boats, water safety and fundamental movement and balance skills. This program is a half-day program and will be offered in both the morning and afternoon.
Can Sail 1 (ages 8-13) is a full-day introductory program with a focus on fun, safety and basic sailing skills.
CanSail 2 (ages 8-13) is a full day program that progressively builds and develops the skills learned in the CanSail 1 program with a focus on keeping the sailor engaged with appropriate challenges and learning as well as an introduction to racing.
