Bytown Brigantine offers the opportunity for youth, teens and adults to have fun, learn new skills, gain confidence, face challenges and accept responsibility through our unique Tall Ship sailing adventures. Our programs range from weekend Black Jack camps on the Ottawa River to 21-day voyages of discovery aboard Fair Jeanne, sailing through the Thousand Islands and Great Lakes. Our programs are made possible by the many volunteers whose passion, experience, commitment and time make the Bytown Brigantine experience safe and memorable.
