Fair Jeanne


Ages 14+

Adventure camp for teens

Sailing aboard the Fair Jeanne…hoist the sails, steer the ship, climb the masts, stand a watch and make lifelong friends along the way. You don’t need to know a thing about sailing – we’ll show you the ropes! You’ll gain confidence, learn how to work in a team, and have amazing adventures. This is more than a summer camp for teens, many of the kids who sail with us come back year after year, some even joining the crew to teach the next generation!

The Fair Jeanne

Sailing on Lake Ontario & St. Lawrence River

The 110-foot Fair Jeanne has sailed more than 150,000 nautical miles in the Great Lakes, the St. Lawrence Seaway, the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and the Caribbean. She sleeps 36, has 10 sails and  masts that soar 80 feet into the air. The Fair Jeanne was built in the late Captain Fuller’s backyard and was launched in 1982.

80 feet above the waterline furling a sail, or feeling the bow spray from 100 feet away – we’ve got adventure in spades.

You’ve learned how to set the sails, how to navigate in rough water and you’ve learned to trust in yourself.

Stay for a longer voyage as an Officer-in-Training – you may find yourself leading a group of your peers.

The only way a tall ship sails is through teamwork. Try hauling up the main by yourself and you’ll quickly learn what we mean!

We all start knowing next to nothing about traditional tall ship sailing; it’s all part of the adventure. You’ll learn quickly!

Close quarters, unexpected challenges and shared adventures are the recipe for life-long friendships.
