New England Sailing Camp

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 choose to sail in 15′ Cape Cod Mercuries on Cape Cod Bay or Sunfish at our fresh water Long Pond Site. Similar to all of our camp activities, campers are welcomed as novice beginners through more experienced sailors with advanced skills. Teaching groups and boat assignments are based on individual sailing skills with inexperienced sailors being placed with counselors for instruction.

Sailing at Overnight Camp

At our Overnight Camp, older campers enjoy sailing in our Mercs, but may also choose more advanced sailing skills in our 420 racing boats on Long Pond. The CCSC Resident Camp racing team is open to full season campers, ages 13 and up who have high skills. This summer sailing team competes against local yacht clubs during the summer, culminating with the Chatham Regatta. As Resident Campers gain more skills and confidence learning to sail in the Cape Cody Bay, there are opportunities to participate in camp-wide weekly Sunday Races or novelty races on Wednesday nights.

Sailing at Day Camp

At our Day Camp, older campers (12 and up) enjoy sailing in our Mercs.  Younger campers have the option to sail on Long Pond in our Sunfish or on the Bay in the Mercs. Our day campers will enjoy the full benefits of a historic New England summer sailing program.
