You can sail a sailing yacht on the Chesapeake Bay!

Explore the Chesapeake Bay and all it has to offer!  Enjoy a five-day cruise as a Troop/Crew/Ship, anchoring each night in a new place. Sail, swim, cook, eat, fish, and explore the Chesapeake Bay from your sailboat.

Your adventure starts at 12 noon on Monday at the docks in beautiful Rock Hall, MD with our Coast Guard licensed Captains who will facilitate your voyage.   Your home for the week will be on a large sailing vessel of nearly 40 feet or more.  During the adventure, your sailing crew can visit historic Ports of Call in Annapolis and St. Michaels, where you and your mates will be tourists for the evening, discovering the treasures each town has to offer.  You may also choose to anchor off some islands in the bay or cozy inlets.  Your voyage will end back at Rock Hall, MD at noon on Friday where you will disembark with a memories to last a lifetime.

This is not your typical week at Summer camp.  As a unit you can decide how easy going or regimented you would like your experience to be.  

Sailing Crews must consist of 4 to 6 participants from the same unit, at least one of which MUST be a registered Leader (25+), and at least one leader must be trained in Wilderness First Aid & CPR.
