The Chautauqua Lake Community Sailing Foundation is proud and excited to announce a new summer sailing camp for teens on Chautauqua Lake! We will begin our teen sailing programs and recreational sailing on Monday, June 29th. Young people ages 14 – 18 will be able to get out on Chautauqua Lake, learn to sail or sharpen their sailing skills. It’s a great way to have some summertime fun! Ready, set… let’s go sailing! Our program will be in accordance with Governor Cuomo’s statements and the allowance of New York State to proceed into Phase 4 of reopening (which includes educational/recreational camps such as ours).

For our programs this year, we have developed a formal Operational Safety Plan in accordance with governmental restrictions and official guidance. The primary elements of that plan include, but are not limited to, mandatory face coverings while ashore, social distancing between groups, limited total people allowed on-site, and hand sanitization. A full list of our 2020 safety plans and procedures will be available on our website and will be provided to all registrants.

Our primary program for this summer will be a 7 week Teen Sailing Camp for ages 14 – 18, from 3 PM to 6 PM, Monday through Friday. Teen sailing starts June 29th and ends August 14th. Pricing is $50 a week, with discounts for multi-week registration.
