Teen Sailing for 14 – 17 years of age
Our NEWLY revised program involves more sailing and water sports than ever before. With a chance to sail Lasers, Omegas, Hobicats and 50ft Bavarias, this program takes full advantage of the beautiful Adriatic coast and perfect sailing conditions.
Sailing and outdoor enthusiasts will love our Teen Sailing program because it combines the best of both worlds; a fun, activity packed week at Resident camp and a week of exploring the beautiful Adriatic coast aboard luxurious 50ft Bavaria yachts. You will have the time of your life and return home with lasting memories, new skills, friends for life, confidence, and many stories you’ll be excited to share.
Please note, you DO NOT need to have previous sailing experience – just the desire to have an amazing, fun packed water adventure!
Our two-week sailing program starts with a week at Camp California’s Resident camp in Pakostane, where our primary focus is on the fundamentals of sailing and learning/improving your skills in smaller boats. When you’re not out sailing, you will get the chance to try a range of other water sports including windsurfing, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, scuba diving, raft building, snorkelling and waterpark - featuring our water trampolines and brand NEW blob! You will also get the opportunity to join in and enjoy some of our other resident camp activities.
Our second week brings us to open water sailing, island hopping and life on luxury 50 ft sailboats. We will sail for 4 to 6 hours each day, learning how to rig the boat, tack, anchor, steer, read the wind and tie knots. Each day we drop anchor off beautiful islands which allows time for swimming, snorkelling, sea games, stand-up paddling or simply relaxing on deck.
Teamwork, friendship and fun are at the heart of Camp California’s Teen Sailing program, and so is relaxing with crewmates after a vigorous day at sea. Whether we cook a meal together on board or we visit a restaurant, the whole group will be together enjoying amazing sunsets, walks into town and evening swims before the majority of the group sleeps on deck under the stars!
Croatia is one of the world’s top destinations for sailing – plenty of sunshine, mild conditions and the beautiful islands and coastal villages of Dalmatia allow you to wake up to a new adventure every day in one beautiful location after another!
Teen Sailors sail along the beautiful Croatian coast, stopping in secret island coves to swim in crystal clear blue water. We visit a variety of Dalmatian islands, coastal towns and national parks including Pakostane, Zadar, Murter, Vodice, Kornati, Krka, Sibenik, Skradin, Kaprije, Zlarin, Zaton.
So what are you waiting for? Hop on board and join us for the most amazing summer adventure!
