AQUATICS CAMP AT GLENCOE BEACH (AGES 9-13)

Enjoy Glencoe Beach and beautiful Lake Michigan! This unique experience takes place at the Glencoe Beach Boat House. Spend the summer kayaking, Hobie cat sailing, surfing, and stand-up paddleboarding. During rough days, campers will boogie board or play games on the beach, including volleyball, and baseball. On stormy days, camps move to the Takiff Center for indoor fun. Each session begins with boater safety lessons and in-water instruction. All campers will be required to wear life jackets and complete a swim check. 

SAILING CAMP AT GLENCOE BEACH (AGES 9-13)

Enjoy safe sailing adventures on Lake Michigan. Sailors learn the basics of steering, trimming the sail, and balancing the boat in an exciting, hands-on way. Using U.S. Sailing teaching methods, sailors practice land and water drills making Sailing Camp fun, safe and educational. Sailors complete a swim check at the beginning of camp, so instructors are aware of weak and nervous swimmers. Life jackets are worn by campers whenever on or near the water.
