Summer Day Camp for Young
Mariners Announced

Camp AHOY!  to emphasize boating safety and the marine environment during weekly sessions for youngsters from 8 to 15 years of age.

N. Fort Myers, Fla. Florida Sailing & Cruising School (FS&CS) has announced dates for three sessions of CAMP AHOY!, its week-long summer sailing day camp for boys and girls 8 to 15.

The three five-day sessions, which take place at Marinatown Marina, are scheduled July 14-18, July 21-25, and July 28-August 1.  A U.S. Coast Guard-licensed captain will serve as camp counselor and sailing instructor for no more than five students per session aboard a Hunter 29 sailboat.

Barb Hansen, co-founder and manager of FS&CS since 1984, said the day camp will teach sailing skills, boating safety, personal responsibility, and appreciation of the marine environment. Tuition is $395 per child, plus tax, which includes five half-day (8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.) camp sessions, a snack, fuel expense, and a CAMP Ahoy! T-shirt.

The five-day schedule includes a variety of learning activities while the vessel is in its slip, while underway and while anchored. All campers must know how to swim, Hansen said.

For more information and to register students, parents may contact Florida Sailing & Cruising School at 1-800-262-7939 or 239-656-1339.

In addition to Camp AHOY!, Florida Sailing & Cruising School offers a variety of boating courses for powerboaters and sailors. FS&CS is a division of Southwest Florida Yachts, Inc., North Fort Myers, FL 33903.
