Overnight Sailing & Fun in the Sun

Viking Sailor Program

Boys Sailing Overnight Camp

AWESOME SAILING is what the Viking Sailors are saying. In addition to enjoying great in-camp activities, Viking Sailors receive sailing lessons on our fast Butterflies, M-scows, C-scows and E-scow sailboats as well as an introduction to fixed keel boating.

Then, campers embark on a seven-day cruise on two HWH fixed keel boats (26 and 28 feet in length) in the guarded waters near Drummond Island in Lake Huron near DeTour, Michigan allowing the perfect chance to explore scores of smaller islands.

Trained staff accompany the campers as the two boats operate in tandem as they explore the many islands of Potaganissing Bay.
