Take your children on an experience they will never forget. The Beijing Sailing Center is offering affordable summer sailing camps for children and young adults. This is a great chance to get away from the city, be surrounded by nature, and to try something completely different.
These sailing camps help to foster important inter-personal skills such as leadership, teamwork and assertiveness. Each child will learn to be more independent and self-sufficient. They will also be able to improve their overall coordination and balance. At the end of the camp there will be a competition giving them the chance to show off the skills they have learnt throughout the camp.
There are three different types of camps depending how long you wish to stay:
Single and Double Summer Camps: For kids from ages of 8 to 16, the single camp is for 5 days and the double camp for 12 days.
Youth Camps: For University and high school students age 16+, these camps are for young adults and use larger boats. Since the age restriction is higher, the camp is more challenging but still age appropriate. Sailors will be introduced to the international sailing lifestyle by a team of foreign instructors. These camps are 7 days long.
Here is the itinerary for both single, double and youth camp:
The final day of the camp will be a race day filled with fun activities including:
- Blindfold boat-rigging race
- Knot race
- Raft race
- Water tennis
- Obstacle race
- Regatta sailing race
The Beijing Sailing Club is located in Beidaihe, a 2 hour train ride and a 3 hour car ride from Beijing.
