Boating for Teens

For teens with previous boating experience

Teens love boating, too! Geared toward ages 13-15, Boating for Teens Camp is a great time on the water. Teen Camp is offered at three-week increments, giving campers plenty of opportunities to demonstrate leadership skills and to learn more advanced boating techniques. Problem-solving and critical thinking are abilities that teens will naturally pick up in this fun, authentic learning environment.


Teen activities are based off skills assessed by nationally recognized organizations such as the American Red Cross, US Sailing, US Powerboating, and the American Canoe Association (ACA). In addition to paddling and sailing lessons, teen campers will have an opportunity to earn their Red Cross First Aid and CPR certificates. They’ll learn basic water rescues, like those used by lifeguards and safe boating instructors. Furthermore, they will engage in team building activities and learn to work with camper, counselors, and other teens in a cooperative environment.


Boating For Teens Camp is a great program for teens who are interested in working with children, the outdoor recreation industry, and customer service, and much more! Teen Camp also increases the chances that teens may be hired to work at Boating in Boston in the future. We love to see the young people who grew up in our camp return year after year.  Some even return in their college years to intern in marketing, finance, human resources, and operations!
