My dog Nala joining the kids!
We had an interesting week on Lake Dillon with extremely varied and high winds. All the kids toughened up and braved the cold waters of the lake. Even though we had more capsizing this week than most, it was still exciting and a great experience for all the kids. Even when it started to rain, the kids stayed out on the lake and had water-gun fights. There are definitely some tough kids up in the mountains. There was also some great mini racing by all students on the last day. Week 4 pictures and video
Another amazing week up here in the mountains. Had a good amount of past campers with great sailing skills so we had the opportunity to venture farther out into Lake Dillon to experience consistent & heavier winds. The weather was sunny everyday and with the water up more, the lake is looking very nice. We were able to get the 420 & Laser in the water for Junior Olympic training. We also had a huge water-gun fight on the beach the last day. Thank you to all the sailors for a fun week!
We just finished Week 2 of sailing camp on Lake Dillon Reservoir. This week, the SOS Outreach kids returned. SOS is a program which allows undeserved youth to participate in outdoor programs they would normally not be able to afford. We were so very happy they could join us again this year. The wind and weather were challenging at the beginning of the week, but all the kids were able to get out and test their skills. Thank you to all the kids and parents for another great week.
We had an awesome first week of camp with kids local to Summit County. The weather was amazing and the wind was perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better group of kids! Check out the Facebook page for more photos and also a short video.
Happy Memorial Day Weekend! The lake is finally melted and is starting to rise. The Dillon Marina is open this weekend, as well as the newly remodeled Tiki Bar. Our dock is in the process of being refurbished and will be more safe for all students. We hope everyone enjoys this beautiful weather and gets outside for whatever activities you enjoy. Don't forget, the early registration discount ends May 31st. Have a great weekend!
