GRIT N' SAIL | 8-18yrs




GRIT Adventure Camp +  Learn to Sail Camp 

Give your camper the opportunity to explore for a week at  GRIT Adventure Camp

while also spending a week learning how to sail at our partner camp run by the NY Harbor Sailing Foundation, the non-profit arm of Manhattan Yacht Club.   


Both camps offer a rich experience and can be done one week after the other or spaced across the summer.  Whichever is best for you!  


8 -13 yrs

For 8-13 yr old's,  GRIT 'n SAIL  combines the best of both worlds.  A week of Adventure Camp @ GRIT  with actions sports and more!  And a week+ learning how to sail an Optimist dingy in a protected cove near Liberty State Park with trained instructors from the NY Harbor Sailing Foundation, the best learn to sail operation on the Hudson.     


Sign up for a week or spend the summer with us!  Mix and match between camps or just do one. Its up to you. 


 A great set of experiences and lifelong memories and friendships await.  

Given its the first year of our partnership, you will need to register for each camp separately. 



14+ yrs 

For 14+  teens,  spend a week+  at the Teen Sailing Academy run by  NY Harbor Foundation. and learn to sail a J24, the same boat used to teach adults.   An invaluable, life-long learning experience.  

And, if you want, sign up to attend GRIT as a  Junior Counselor (JT for short for  14-16 yrs) or a Counselor in Training (CIT) for  16-17 yrs.   

This 2+ week program provides a week @ GRIT getting valuable work experience and then a week learning to Sail.   The best of both worlds!   

A fantastic experience for your teen! 


GRIT & NY Harbor Sailing Foundations "Learn to Sail" Programs are separate camps.   

We created this partnership with NY Harbor Sailing Foundation because we believe learning to sail is a life changing experience.    

However, given we are separate camps,
you will have to sign up for both separately!
