Drummoyne Sailing Club currently conducts several Learn to Sail courses each year, as well as a shorter 'Muck around in Boats' course that aims to give kids a taste of sailing and spending time on the water.

July School Holiday Camps

This is a camp for young prospective sailors who are looking to have fun on and around the water. This is NOT a “learn to sail” class, but rather a program designed to improve a child’s comfort and confidence around water, as well as develop respect for the marine environment.

Sailors will enjoy a variety of sailing related activities each day, including games, boat rides and swim time. Upon sailing school approval, graduates of the holiday program may enrol in our beginning sailing program a year early at the age of seven.

Participants are supervised by qualified Australian Sailing Trainers and Coaches. Parents and carers are welcome to stay or leave their children with us - they will be well cared for and have a lot of fun!

Two camps are offered for the 2017 July school holidays:

DSC July School Holiday Camp Week 1 -
