Back for its third year, Newport Yacht Club's Marine Adventure Camp promises to bring fun to the Newport waterfront for youth of all ages. The mission of the Camp is provide access to sailing, sailboat racing, and marine education for ages 7-15 from any level or background. Due to proximity, to some of the best sailing resources in the world, NYC is in a unique position to provide quality nautical and sailing instruction for the youth of the Narragansett Bay. The focus of the program is fun and of course, safety. The Camp aims to be an alternative to a racing focused program.
The Marine Adventure Camp will be broken into 2 week sessions and a combination of activities unique to meet the mission.
