The Joseph Conrad Overnight Sailing Camp is one of the Museum’s premier camp offerings for young people ages 10–15. It combines a residential camp model, historic setting, top-notch sailing instruction, unique experiential activities, and dynamic staff to create an unforgettable and fun experience. This camp is unique because it combines the best of a sailing camp with the opportunities for campers to experience one-of-a-kind hands-on activities in a beautiful setting on the Mystic River. Because the camp is located at Mystic Seaport, campers have 19 acres of exciting exhibits and vessels to explore when they are not sailing. The camp promotes teamwork, responsibility, and seamanship.
While sailing is a primary focus of this camp, campers also take advantage of all the exciting activities available on our 19 acres of Museum grounds. We help campers make the most of their time off the water with a variety of unique activities that draw on the Museum’s unparalleled exhibits and staff to help campers experience what life in 19th–century New England would have been like. Topics covered include maritime history, marine science, astronomy and navigation, music of the sea, and seamanship.
Mystic Seaport also offers day sailing camps as well as non-sailing summer day camps. For more information on those camps please visit https://www.mysticseaport.org/learn/summer-camps/
