If you are looking to keep the kids entertained over the school holidays, UKSA’s fun-filled, on-the-water holiday clubs could be the answer. Offering multi-activity summer camps, fun days and RYA accredited dinghy sailing, there is something for all.
UKSA enjoys a waterfront location in Cowes on the sunny Isle of Wight and is the perfect location for residential and non-residential watersports during the school holidays. Our programmes are centered on sailing, watersports, and teambuilding and designed to develop a range of skills.
For those aged 8+ who want to learn to sail and achieve certification, UKSA’s RYA Dinghy Start, Improver and Advanced options cover all levels. Younger children aged 6 and 7 will love our Dinghy minis which help build water confidence through fun sailing-based activities.
UKSA’s popular Summer Camps are designed to ignite a passion in 6 – 15 year olds looking to try a range of watersports over a fun-filled, action-packed week. Activities can include dinghy sailing, stand up paddleboarding, kayaking, windsurfing, raft building and team games.
During the May half-term and October half-term, UKSA’s Mini fun days for 6 and 7 year olds and fun days for 8 – 15 year olds offer a variety of different fun water-based activities.
If you’re looking for something for the whole family, UKSA’s brand new Family Fun Days offer the perfect opportunity to get out on the water together. Suitable for ages 6+ and all abilities, each group can consist of up to 6 people with at least one adult in each group. Programmed dates are available or speak to UKSA to arrange your own private course.
Children will be taught by our experienced instructors and use our top-of-the-range kit. We have an exemplary safety record and provide all the equipment you’ll need, including wetsuits, buoyancy aids, spray tops and helmets. An all-inclusive residential option is also available for weeklong training.
