CCSC is the last of the great Cape Cod Sailing Camps! With three boat fleets and two wonderful sailing venues, CCSC is still considered one of the top Sailing Camps in America.

Campers may choose to sail in 15′ Cape Cod Mercuries on Cape Cod Bay or in Sunfish at our fresh water Long Pond Site. Our program is designed to accommodate novice beginners up through more experienced sailors with advanced skills. Instructional groups and boat assignments are based on an individual’s sailing skills. Our fleet includes:

Swimming has been an integral part of our camp program since 1922. Campers are required to participate in summer swimming lessons until they pass their American Red Cross Level 5 test.

At each American Red Cross level, campers learn valuable swimming skills. From developing safe swimming habits to mastering different swimming strokes, our swim program helps children of all skill levels enjoy the water.

In accordance with Christian’s Law, the Cape Cod Sea Camps screens campers for swim levels at their first swim session and provides Coast Guard approved swimming lifejackets at our non-pool venues for non-swimmers if they choose to wear them. You must inform the camp if you require your camper to wear a lifejacket during open water swimming activities. If parents wish to send along their own swimming lifejackets they need to conform with the law. Note: Campers are usually screened in our pool and don’t wear a lifejacket during the screening.

No summer on Cape Cod would be complete without fun on the water. In addition to sailing, we offer instruction in kayaking, waterskiing and windsurfing. Campers who choose windsurfing and waterskiing will travel to our Long Pond site for the entire morning or afternoon for instruction. Please note: to participate in waterskiing or windsurfing, campers must have passed their American Red Cross Level 5 in swimming.

There's a reason why the camp has been going strong for over 90+ years. Our children have been attending for many years and each summer is better than the last. Great experience all-around!
