Sails & Sports

Full Day Sailing & Sports Camp

SAILS & SPORTS, Chicago’s premier sports camp. Your 8+ year old will learn to sail and enjoy first-class training in multiple sports. In just one awesome week (9-5), your child will learn valuable new skills that are challenging, rewarding and fun. Marvel at their smiles as they develop new levels of athleticism, sportsmanship, and confidence that will serve them forever.


Campers meet their instructional team at our facilities in Waveland Park at 9am each day. Each session begins with stretching and warm-ups, followed by training in fundamentals in the ‘Sport of the Day’*, including, rules, skills, and sportsmanship. Sessions end with fun competition. By the end of their week, each player will have a firm, practical foundation in multiple sports.

Following lunch at Chicago Sailing’s dock, small groups of new sailors take to the water for sailing instruction with their professional instructors. Sailing skills are learned and practiced to the standards of US Sailing, the governing body of sailing in America.  New sailors master fundamental sailboat operations, including boating safety, terminology, wind, tacking/gybing, and docking. In just one week of instruction on Chicago Sailing’s keelboats, your camper will master the basic skills needed to operate a sailboat in controlled conditions.

After a day of wholesome outdoor activities your camper is ready for pick up (5pm) at Chicago Sailing’s facilities on B-dock in North Belmont Harbor.
