Learn to sail in a fun setting with no pressure! If you are 7 – 9 years old and are thinking about learning to sail, but you’re a bit nervous about boats and the water, don’t be. In our new “Opti Sailing Camp” program, you’ll build confidence in one- or two-week sessions that have no tests and no set outcomes (unless you consider “joy of sailing” to be an outcome!).There will be tons of cool activities, such as tie-dye day, treasure hunts, boat building and decorating, picnics, theme days, family day, beach day and much more. Your instructors are very patient, have a great sense of humour, loads of energy, and are trained to introduce a new feeling of skill to first time sailors – like you. You will be sailing in small boats that are very easy for people in your age-group to handle. When you go back to school in September, you’ll be able to tell your friends and teachers that you sailed your own boat, by yourself, on Lake Ontario: How cool is that? Register today (or, if you’re too busy, get your parents to do it; they love doing this kind of stuff) and get signed up.  Click here to register.
