The Never Say Never Foundation & Pirates of the Care Free Being at arms with Sailability present the Second Annual Never Say Never Pirate Camp. This weekend long camp teaches amputee youth, along with friends and family ocean appreciation, sailing skills, and the importance of following your dreams. Hosted at the Clearwater Community Sailing Center in Clearwater Beach, FL during the 2nd weekend of October, the camp not only provides certified sailing instruction, but also water sports, hands on activities, featured guest, regatta races and more. The soon to be swashbucklers can expect a strong introduction to sailing & three days full of pirate fun, moving from swabs to first mates, ultimately graduating the weekend as Never Say Never Pirates.
Check-Ins begin early Friday afternoon for those arriving from out of state. From 7-9pm, a meet & greet will be held at the hotel cafe’, where food is available and activities for the kids will be provided. This gives families and volunteers a chance to get to know each other before the weekend.
Saturday begins with an introduction to sailing, preparing the kids for an afternoon regatta race. Pirate obstacle courses, mobility/agility exercises and arts & crafts after lunch and concluding with a pirate party.
Sunday’s focus is open activities and exercises including yoga/pilates, sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding and fun at the beach. After lunch there will be the option to visit the Clearwater Marine Aquarium and meet winter the dolphin.
