Camp

The Chesapeake Experience is excited to offer Summer Camp 2021!

Your child needs to experience nature and the water with us this summer! Let them zoom on the water in a sailboat, instead of a computer. They will not only build confidence and athleticism. Sailing improves mental health, something we all need after this past year. Sailing is a healthy outside activity in which children can be with their friends in a safe environment. 

It's not just camp, it's the Chesapeake Experience!
