AYC Junior Week is a one-week overnight sailing camp focusing on sailing classes during the day and fun activities each evening.
AYC Day Camp is a one week day sailing clinic for our younger sailors. Day camp runs from 8:30 to 4:30 daily (except Friday) and includes both classes and activities.

Overnight Junior Week Campers must turn 12 in 2021 (2009 or earlier birth year) and can be up to 18 years of age. Day campers must be 9 years old before June 6., 2021. All campers must be able to swim and must have completed the AYC Junior Training or an equivalent program.
Junior sailors who belong to other yacht clubs may be accorded the privilege of attending Junior Week. Such attendance shall be at the regular AYC member rate and shall require that the Junior’s family present evidence of membership in good standing in a AYC Commodore approved yacht club. The AYC Commodore shall provide final approval for the Junior to attend.
After the posted registration deadline expires, an AYC Member in good standing with one or more children registered for Junior Week can request to sponsor an application for one guest per registered child. The Junior Week Chair will review and consider applications in order of receipt. The number of guest Junior Week sailors shall not exceed 20% of the registered Junior Week sailors. Approved applicants will be responsible for the posted camp fee, an additional $150.00 guest fee, and adherence to volunteer and other camp requirements.
Applicants must be children of club members that are at least 9 years old before June 6, 2021. Grandchildren of club members and other extended family members will be considered on a space available basis.

Depending on interest, we anticipate having the following fleets:
The parent or sponsor of each camper must volunteer a minimum of 8 hours for each family member participating in Junior Week. In lieu of volunteering your time, you may pay additional $250 per child. Signup to volunteer HERE
The theme for 2021 Junior Week is "Sailing through the Decades". We'll be celebrating the decades through food, games and activities. Everyone is encouraged to get in the spirit and welcome to bring their favorite decade-themed attire or accessories.
20's night: Grab your fedoras and headbands
50's night: It's a beach party -- polka dots anyone?
70s night: This decade was all about bell bottoms and wide lapels.
80s night: Never too much neon!
. . . and let's not forget the 60s, the 90s, and 00s. Time to raid parent and grandparent closets!
