Learn to sail with Halifax Youth Sailing

Summer SailCamp 2024

(HYS is not the Yacht Club. We are a community sailing center located next to the Daytona Beach City recreational fields at Bethune Point)

Ages 10-17
Mon. - Fri., 9am - 4pm

Enjoy a summer of fun! Sailors can learn sailing and seamanship skills at Halifax Youth Sailing. Our staff of experienced US Sailing Certified Instructors will teach your kids lifetime skills in our fleet of Optis, 420s, Lasers and Sunfish.
The new sailors have an opportunity for non-stop fun in, on and around the water in a safe, clean, outdoor environment. No experience necessary. Over the duration of the course, students will progress through the ranks from Seaman to Skipper.
Children must wear and be comfortable in a well-fitting life jacket. They must pass a swim check conducted on the first day. They must wear close-toed shoes at all times at the facility.
Let's have fun on the water learning to sail!
