2024 Sailing Camp dates: May 28 – July 5th
2024 Powerboat Camp dates: July 8th – 18th


Powerboat Camp Info:

LEYSF is pleased to offer a NASBLA-approved Safe Boater education program that complies with the law (“In order to operate a motorboat of 10hp or greater, FL law requires anyone born on or after Jan 1, 1988, to successfully complete an approved boating safety course and obtain a Boating Safety Education ID Card.”). This course includes taking the test at the end of the training.

Our youth boater education follows Florida’s FWC How to Boat Smart boater education course (aka “The Bobber Course”) in addition to hand’s on power boating practice.  The “Bobber Card” course teaches the content knowledge, it does not provide for any on-the-water skills development. The US Coast Guard and NASBLA have identified 30+ specific boat handling skills that all beginning boat operators should be able to demonstrate. LEYSF teaches these on-the-water skills as part of its safe boater education training.

We teach youth ages 12 -18 years and camp is Monday – Thursday, 9am – 12pm.


Sailing Camp Info:

Since 2004, Lake Eustis Youth Sailing Foundation has been offering sailing lessons to central Florida youth.  Students start by learning to sail in a class environment and then put their skills into practice on the water. Students in Adventure groups experience a variety of sailing situations and expand their knowledge by participating in STEM activities related to the science of sailing!  If you have any questions, feel free to ask:  

Camp is Mon – Fri, 9am – 3pm.

We provide the boats, the lessons, and great instructors – all you need to do is:

  • be aged 8-18, and able to swim

  • bring a water bottle, sunblock, hat & sunglasses
  • bring quick dry clothes (board shorts and top) and towel
