Waterfront

The Dock

Four Winds Westward Ho is located on its own small inlet, which is perfect for activities in and on the water. Camp has a long history of sailing and water-based trips.

Canoeing

We offer canoeing as a class, and campers may also participate in an overnight canoe trip with their cabin or tent group to a nearby island. We have several different types of canoes, including beautiful handcrafted Old Town war canoes, built in the 1930’s and still in use today.

Kayaking

We have many small kayaks available for kids to take out in Four Winds Bay, and also maintain a set of sea kayaks for our trips program. It’s a great way to see the islands, and learn about kayaking and seamanship skills.

Paddle Boarding

We offer Paddle Boarding as a class which proves to be very popular each Summer. Campers are able to explore the beautiful Four Winds Bay while on top of a Stand Up Paddle Board!

Sailing

We own our own 61-foot yawl, the Carlyn, which takes kids on day sails and overnight trips, and while in camp kids have the opportunity to sleep on board and learn how to care and maintain a large boat. Additionally, we have a range of other sailboats, including Lightnings, Lasers, F.J.s, and Bugs. Sailing classes are offered to all levels of sailors, from absolute beginners to those wishing to perfect their technique in race sailing.
