Junior Sail Auction
GHYC Junior Sail is one of the few kid's camps that opened this summer to provide a safe outdoor activity for local youth. It required meticulous planning to safely operate during the pandemic, but we felt it was compelling to open our camp to provide an outlet for kids and sanity for parents! The Pierce County Health Department and PenMet Parks called our Covid-19 policies a model for others. We had to reduce class sizes, the cost to get each kid through camp skyrocketed--but it was all worth it to see the kids back on the water. Most importantly, we did not have a single case of Covid-19.

Now we need the community's help.
Our online auction September 18th-27th is our single annual fundraiser (preview available now).

 

Welcome to GHYC Junior Sail

We are about fun, friends, adventure and learning life-long skills on the water
GHYC Junior Sail is a non-profit organization created to promote youth sailing through award winning summer camp for kids and teens. Our goal is to provide access to sailing to girls and boys, ages 6 to18 with no sailing experience up to racing level sailors. We build self-esteem, teamwork and a respect for the environment. We run programs in instruction, competitive racing, and community outreach.
