Junior Sailing/Junior Buccaneers Program

by / Monday, 22 May 2017 / Published in Junior Sailing, Sailing

Looking for a great way to get your kids to make new friends, learn new skills and develop a love for the water?  The Junior Buccaneers (JBs),  for children ages 6-7, will participate in activities that provide a “sampling” of all that summer at the MYC has to offer for our young people. The program will include sailing, swimming, arts & crafts, nature explorations and games.

On Land and Sea, JBs will participate in an array of activities that teach them water safety, respect for the environment and help them to build confidence while making new friends at the MYC.

Each day is different for a Junior Buccaneer but at the end of the session, JBs will remember:
Sailing activities that include an introduction to the Optimist on land and water, rides in the coach boat around the harbor, knot tying and sailing games that introduce them to the “rules of the sea.”

Cooling off with pool activities, games and competitions that build confidence and skill in the water. Nature walks that incorporate explorations of tidal pools and other habitats while learning some local legend and lore regarding Milford and its long maritime tradition.
The 2017 program will consist of one session, Mon – Fri, hours 8:30 -11:00. The first session will run Tue 6/27 – Fri 7/21. Cost of the program is $350 per session. All boats used in this program will be provided by the club.

Do I need to be a member? No! Our programs are open to all. However, non-members are required to pay a $675 “C” membership fee per child.
