Summer 2023 Youth Schedule

Summer 2023

Summer Voyages on TS Playfair and STV Pathfinder are the core of our program and provide an experience unlike any other. You will be an active member of the crew and live, eat and sleep onboard our Tall Ship. By the end of a voyage, you will know the fundamentals of how to sail a Tall Ship and be certified as a Brigs ‘Lead Hand’. But it’s not all sailing! Activities during your voyage will include swimming, singing, campfires and exploring ports and anchorages throughout the Great Lakes.

No previous experience is required. Our youth officers of TS Playfair and STV Pathfinder will teach you everything you need to know.

There are three simple requirements to join summer youth voyages:

  • Must be 13 to 18 years of age.
  • Must be comfortable in and around the water.
  • Must be ready for adventure.
