Youth STEM Camps
The College of Charleston Sailing Association is excited to offer STEM Camps for children ages 8 to 14.
Our STEM youth camps are geared to teach children the science, technology, engineering, and math behind sailing. The C of C sailing instructional staff follows a nationally recognized curriculum and partners with the college’s faculty to conduct hands on experiments. The sailing portion is done on our J/22 fixed keelboats. The staff and instructors are skilled and passionate sailors who will share their enthusiasm with all their students and will hope to encourage your child to pursue future camps and events here at C of C Sailing!
The cost is $500* per camper for the 5 day program. Each session will be capped at 16 participants, and each day will run from 9am to 5pm.
Our College of Charleston sailing complex is located in the Patriots Point Marina in Mt Pleasant, adjacent to the Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina Hotel. Once on the main marina dock, turn right towards the Yorktown and follow the signs to C of C Sailing. Please feel free to visit the sailing center, inspect our fleet, and talk to our friendly staff, Ned Goss or Stefan Kuehn if you have any questions.
