Looking for a great way to get some fresh air and investigate the shoreline of Lake Champlain? You could be exploring the waters of Burlington Bay by spending an hour or half a day in a sailboat, kayak, canoe, or stand-up paddleboard surrounded by mountain views. Maybe your spending a more extended vacation in the area and you'd like to come together to learn how to sail as a family or enroll in one of their Week-long camps? The Lake Champlain Community Sailing Center offers a wide variety of opportunities for adventures on the lake. They provide Rentals which include life jackets and paddles along with some safety basics, Private Lessons with a certified instructor on board, week-long Adult Programs or Kids Camps organized by age group and led by certified instructors and Monday and Wednesday hour-long Yoga sessions (drop-ins welcome) right on the dock, overlooking Lake Champlain and the scenic Adirondack Mountains! No matter what your experience level or limitations, the Sailing Center staff can provide a great way for you to try out a new watersport in a supportive environment, focus in on developing a particular skill, realize your goals using adaptive teaching methods and specialized equipment for individuals with cognitive or physical disabilities, or simply have fun on the water.
