Welcome aboard Nauticus’ new summer camp! Our award-winning camp has been reinvented for 2020 and is packed full of nonstop hands-on and minds-on experiences!

Your child will explore the entire Nauticus campus as they dive into STEM-based activities onboard our Harbor 20 sailboats, the Schooner Virginia, the Battleship Wisconsin and inside Nauticus! Throughout the week, campers will test their hands at sailing up-wind, building underwater robots and much more. Let them teach you what it takes for a 58,000-ton steel ship to float or how over 6,500 square feet of sails are controlled by a tall ship’s crew!

The ultimate ending will involve your child constructing their own makeshift boat to compete with their teammates in a regatta–encompassing all that they’ve learned during the week.

This will be your child’s new favorite week of summer. Register today to secure their spot!

FAQs!

How early/late can I drop off/pick up my child?

Please drop your child off in front of Nauticus at 8:30a.m. daily and pick them up at the same place at 3:30p.m. A Sail Nauticus instructor will meet campers in the front loop of Nauticus for drop off and pickup. Late pick-up is available daily for $45/wk.

Who will accompany my child on the sailboat?
Children in groups of three or four will be taught by a trained instructor on each Harbor 20 sailboat.
Can my child be on the same boat as his/her sibling/friend?
While we try to give our campers a diverse experience and encourage new friendships, we will do our best to accommodate your request!
What happens if it rains?
Sailing in the rain is a sail you’ll remember, especially if the wind is up. However, safety is our priority, and we will not sail if lightning and thunder or any other threatening weather conditions are a factor, nor will we sail in winds above 20 knots. If poor weather occurs, land-based activities will be held until the weather clears up.
What if my child barely misses the age cut-off? Do you make exceptions?
We will be happy to add your child to our wait list for camp if they do not meet the age criteria. We will notify you no later than one week before camp if we are able to accommodate them.
Do you provide lunch?
No. Please ensure your child brings a bag lunch and a snack daily.
