What is Sail Salem?

Sail Salem is an educational program for children promoting positive life skills and values through the sport of sailing. In the last four years Sail Salem has introduced sailing to over 1,000 children from Salem and surrounding towns.  Lessons are conducted in Salem Harbor off Winter Island and we are bringing the love of sailing to many children who would not have the opportunity to be on a boat. Scholarships and financial aid are available. Please email for more information.

Our Mission

Sail Salem is a community sailing program that exists to educate and encourage independence, responsibility, self-confidence, teamwork, environmental awareness and an enduring appreciation of our waterways.

"My oldest boy is on his third year with Sail Salem. It is by far his favorite camp!

It will be my younger boys first year this season and he can’t wait. Sail Salem..... you ROCK!"

"Our 8year old took beginners camp here and loved it. He is shy, but had great time with counselors.
I hope he can do it again next year. its great and so very affordable!"

"Thank you Sail Salem for a wonderful sailing experience.
Our kids from California wanted to learn how to sail while visiting Salem.
Your program was well organized, safe, and most especially fun.
We will definitely sign up again next year.
Please let your wonderful sail instructors, know they did a superb job! "

This camp complies with regulations of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and is licensed by the local board of health.
