Spend your summer down on the docks!

In this one week training course, Junior Instructors (JIs) will learn the basics of what it means to be a part of the support staff at the CSC. In this camp, JIs will learn the daily flow at the Sailing Center, how to rig, sail and care for our fleet, how to deliver camp curriculum with seasonal staff and how to positively support campers.
