Camp offerings for children ages 5-8


At CYC, we believe in teaching children how to be safe and comfortable around the water from a young age. We are pleased to offer our Guppy program, for ages 6-8, all summer long. If you have a 5 year old who you believe would have a great time in our camp, please contact juniorsprogram@cycseattle.org. Our Mommy/Daddy + Me classes are also open to a parent and sailor as young as 4!

Classes for ages 5-8 by week


CYC Guppy Program

The guppies class is the best place for brand new sailors aged 6-8 and less than 100 lbs. This half day week long introduction to sailing can be participated in by students who are interested in the fundamentals of being on and around the water. Small class sizes and fun interactive activities help your little one feel safe and comfortable on the water. In this class, we focus on:

  • Using games to learn and have a lot of FUN!
  • The vocabulary of sailing
  • Being comfortable in, around, and on the water
  • How to be safe and smart around water
  • How wind and sails work together to make a boat move through the water
  • Basic knot tying
