The 200’ full-rigged Sailing School Vessel Oliver Hazard Perry, based in Newport, RI, will offer a pair of sailing camp cruises for teens this summer.

Two trips—one 11-night and one 6-night—are open to teens ages 13-18 and will explore the New England coastline between Boston, MA, Portsmouth, NH, and Newport, RI, while participants witness the magic of the ocean and its inhabitants. The teens take responsibility for themselves and their fellow shipmates, learning to work as a team as they hoist and brace the yards on the ship’s 13 ½-story rig and stand watch at the helm to guide the ship’s course on a voyage of discovery.

Camp Dates

•    July 31 – Aug 11 (Boston, Mass. – Portsmouth, N.H.)
•    Aug 14 – Aug 20 (Portsmouth, N.H. – Newport, R.I.)

Although above decks SSV Oliver Hazard Perry looks like a historical ship, she is in fact a fully modern and technologically sophisticated steel-hulled vessel. Belowdecks is a modern galley and Great Cabin; high-end navigation and communication systems; a state-of-the-art science lab, and classroom spaces outfitted with monitors displaying real-time navigation and meteorological data as well as laptop computers and an interactive SMART board.

Availability is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Registration is open online HERE.
