Lake Yosemite Sailing Association welcomes young sailors. There are two youth program options, Summer Sail Camp for those age 8 to 16 and Sea Scout Ship 99 which is chartered through the Greater Yosemite Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Sail Camp is a fantastic way for young folks to have an introduction to sailing and spend memorable time on the water. The Sea Scout program is managed more like a typical Boy or Girl Scout program. The Sea Scouts have regular meetings and also race in the Thursday night races. Sailing teaches young adults the value of team work and how to work toward a common goal. It provides a healthy, outdoor environment to expend energy and expand the social skill set in ways that will benefit them later in life.
