This unique summer program is a live aboard sailing camp that focuses on sail training, marine science, and island exploration. It stimulates minds, encourages teamwork, develops self-esteem, and it’s FUN!
For the entire voyage, campers are immersed in sail training, marine science, and teamwork aboard TOLE MOUR, the largest sailing school vessel on the West Coast. During the trip. the campers get instruction in sailing the ship as the professional crew gradually turns over the responsibility of running the ship to the trainees. Our instructors also guide the campers through marine science lessons on various topics and water activities, including snorkeling & diving in kelp forests, boogie boarding at remote beaches, and kayaking in the most beautiful locations in the Channel Islands. Activities like climbing aloft, steering, standing watch, and cleaning the ship are integral parts of the voyage, and help campers challenge themselves while building a sense of responsibility for their new floating home. There is also plenty of pure summer camp fun, allowing campers to be themselves while making new friends in a creative environment.
