Sailing, Swimming & Having Fun! Our mission to engage kids in on-water activities, beginning with our grassroots Wet Feet and Opti 1 programs that encourage play and discovery on Halifax's Northwest Arm. With us, your child will benefit from smaller class sizes that allow our instructors to work with your child on their level comfort being in a boat, swimming and also how they follow instruction and structure. What makes our programs unique is that they are offer a new adventure every day, whether that is a costume theme like 'Pirate Day' or a scavenger hunt game during break, or a trip to McNabs Island by boat for a picnic!

How to choose the right program: Choosing the right camp experience for you child is an important decision. That's why we've launched a brief questionnaire to assist you in selecting our grassroots Wet Feet & Opti 1 program. 

How old is your child or how old will your child be during the program? If you child is between 5-7 years of age, they may be best suited for our Wet Feet Program.  If you child is 7-12 years of age, they may be ready for our Opti 1 Program. The questions below will provide guidance to you and your family on which program will be the best fit for your little sailor.

Q1 Has your child had any previous sailing or boating experience?

Q2 Had your child participated in any swimming programs and achieved any level of certification?

Q3 Has your child been enrolled in a summer camp or been a part of a sports/team environment before?

Q4 On a scale of 1 to 5, how comfortable is your child with receiving instruction and applying what they have learned to a designated activity?

If you answered yes to three or more questions, we recommend your child enroll in our Opti 1 Program

If you answered no to three or more questions, we recommend you enroll your child in our Wet Feet Program

Our dedicated instructors will work with you to provide you child with an environment that best suits their ability and make recommendation and adjustments following program registration.
