Requirements and Features for Junior Week 2019

Event Date: June 9 - 14 2019

Theme: Revel in the exciting world of Greek Week, brought to you by AYC Junior Week 2019.

Junior Week Program

AYC Junior Week is a one-week resident sailing camp for children of club members ages 11 through 18. The camp focuses on sailing classes during the day and fun activities each evening.

Day Camp Program

AYC Day Camp is a one week day sailing clinic for our younger sailors, ages 7 and up. Day camp begins at 8:30 AM and ends at 4:30pm Monday through Friday. The Day Camp will focus on sailing classes and will mix some fun activities throughout the day. While evening activities are not initially part of the program, day campers will be able to enjoy fun evening activities as designed by the day camp manager.

Fees

Junior Week fee: $350 for each child

Day Camp fee: $250 for each child

Letter of Acceptance

If the child was accepted to the junior week or day camp program, by mail he or she will receive an acceptance letter, a Rutter with camp information, and legal forms to be completed and turned in during Rush on the first day of camp. Legal forms will include Junior Pledge, Waiver of Liability, and Consent for Treatment.
