SWIM REQUIREMENTS: Confidently swim 100 feet and tread water for at least 5 minutes. (Little Dogies should be comfortable swimming but will not be required to tread water.)
If a camper does not pass the swim test, life jackets will be required at the pool. Life jackets are always required on the docks or boats.

Lunches are offered for $10/day and provided by FWBC. Please select the lunch option when registering. Any dietary restrictions should be shared during registration.
NOTE: Little Dogies camps are only half-day camps, so lunches are not provided.
Snacks may be brought by any campers but please avoid snacks containing nuts.
What are the weather policies?
Camp will take place rain or shine. If the weather keeps us off the water, there are still activities and skills to do and learn on shore! In the case of lightning or severe weather, campers will be moved indoors and activities will be adjusted accordingly. In extreme cases, parents will be notified and camp may be canceled for the day. Please ensure parent/guardian contact information is up to date.
What age groups are the programs open to?
FWBC offers programs for ages 4-18.
4-7 year olds – Little Dogies camps
8-15 year olds – Sailing and Adventure camps
8-18 year olds – FWBC Race Team
Do I need to have prior sailing experience to participate?
No prior experience is needed! We love teaching sailing to beginners! If you have sailing experience, we will continue developing those skills during sailing camps.
What type of boats will be used in the programs?
FWBC has a variety of club owned equipment for campers. Sailboats include, J22s, Sunfish, FJs, Capri 16, Optimist Cubes. We also have Kayaks and Paddleboards we use to play games and explore on light wind days.
Are there any social events or activities planned for the campers or parents?
Every Thursday during camp, there will be an Ice Cream Social at the end of the day as a way for parents to meet the coaches and other parents.
Are campers allowed to bring fishing equipment?
Yes, campers are allowed to bring personal fishing equipment. Adventure camp and Spring Break camp will involve the most fishing opportunities for campers. All personal gear brought is the responsibility of the camper. FWBC is not responsible for any damages to personal equipment brought to camp.
Can campers bring electronics?
Campers are allowed to bring electronics to contact parents if needed. Electronics should remain in bags during camp. FWBC is not responsible for any damages to electronics brought to camp.
How is Spring Break Camp different from Summer Camp?
The main difference is the weather. Same club, same lake, same staff, same fun adventures. Spring Break campers should be prepared for colder water temperatures and colder/rainier days but we adjust our activities to account for weather and water temperatures.
Will parents be given photos taken during camp?
Parents will receive photos taken during the camp! We're excited to share all the wonderful memories and activities your campers participate in. Following camp, an email containing a Google Photos link to the camp album will be sent to you. We strive to capture memorable moments of each camper throughout the week.
