Tall Ship Summer Camps, Business Outings, and Beyond!
A Tall Ship summer camp for youth looking for adventure, friendship, fun, and to explore their world.
We offer an immersive, experiential outdoor adventure program, focused on providing an engaging, fun, and positive expedition, through which youth are empowered to become stronger people, develop new perspectives, and form lasting connections. The social bonds and interpersonal dynamics created aboard a working Tall Ship enable participants to gain insight into themselves, concepts of community, and working harmoniously.
Taking part in a Tall Ship expedition is an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime experience. The sense of freedom, community, exploration, discovery, and the spirit of friendship are unforgettable, and will provide meaningful memories for years to come.
The expedition leads to improved self-confidence, teamwork skills, leadership abilities, introspection, and inter/ intrapersonal development, while also instilling an appreciation for the natural world, and our shared past present and future. Leave the technological world behind and spend an unforgettable time sailing silently along, exploring the seascapes and shorelines of Lake Ontario.
Make new friends while having amazing experiences in scenic and interesting places. Take part in the expedition of a lifetime aboard the Tall Ship St. Lawrence II!
