Scouts Canada to Offer Sailing Adventure Camp

Fredericton, NB – July 25 – Scouts Canada is partnering with the Mactaquac Sailing Association to offer a Sailing Camp to youth aged 13-17, over the week of August 12-18. Participants will camp at the Yoho Scout Reserve outside Fredericton, and will sail at Lake Mactaquac. 

This summer camp experience will combine traditional Scouting skills and activities with exciting hands-on sailing instruction. During the day, campers will learn how to maneuver a full-fledged racing sailboat. The experience will include water safety, raising sail, steering, working effectively as a crew, and boat maintenance – all while on the open water. In the evenings, campers will return to camp to enjoy swimming, canoeing, wide games and campfires. Campers will sleep in tents, cook their own meals, and otherwise enjoy an immersive wilderness camping experience with their new friends. 

This camp is open to girls and guys, and is aimed at novice sailors, or those with limited small boat experience. Membership in Scouting is not required.

Scouts Canada is also offering a Cub Camp for youth aged 8-11, from August 19-25. Registration inquires for both camps may be directed to nbcouncilsummercamps@gmail.com.
