Champ Chaser Sailing Adventures are a sailing and learning adventure for kids in grades 4 through 11. Each trip is tailored to the age level of the sailors and is limited to a crew of four kids so you'll receive lots of individual instruction and attention.

You'll live aboard and explore Lake Champlain's bays, islands and coves. You'll learn to sail and navigate, plot courses, verify weather conditions, and sail the boat. You'll swim in sparking clear waters by day and relax by a beach campfire at night. You'll learn the value and importance of working together as a team, and make new friendships that will last a lifetime.

Although we can't guarantee that you'll actually meet Champ, we can guarantee one of the best summer experiences ever!
