Black Jack

Adventure Camp

Overnight summer camp in the 1000 Islands

What do you get when you combine an 87′ tall ship, two navy whalers and time for games, campfires, ropes courses and activities?  A pretty cool overnight summer camp!

Under the watchful eye of certified crew (10:3 ratio), 12-14 year olds on these 5 day overnight camps learn to sail the tall ship Black Jack, explore the 1000 Islands in one of our smaller sailing vessels and either sleep aboard or at other cool places along the St Lawrence River.

Dividing into ‘watch’ teams they spend their time sailing and learning, swimming and having fun! This is a small group, very unique team building experience for tweens and teens.

Black Jack

The 87-foot Black Jack is more than 100 years old – launched as a tug in 1904, she was converted into a brigantine in 1952. The Black Jack sails the Ottawa River and the St. Lawrence Seaway, and has even been to New York for a Tall Ships Rendezvous.  She just returned from the Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta in Quebec City. She boasts 9 sails and has masts that soar 60 feet into the air!
