About this camp

Britannia Yacht Club

Our award winning program offers sailing instruction for children and teens aged 8 -18. Our goal is to give participants a love, appreciation and respect for sailing and the water. We concentrate on keeping learning fun, in a safe environment! Youth that attend the Junior Sailing Program learn to work as a team, gain valuable leadership skills and increased self-confidence.

The Our Kids review of Britannia Yacht Club


In some cases place is an essential aspect of a camp experience, and BYC is a great example of that. The club has been here for more than 130 years, and it shows its age in all the best ways: established, stately, serene. They refer to it as your cottage in the city, though it’s more than that—it’s the front door of a longstanding tradition and a longstanding community. Campers enter a culture of expertise and engagement, gaining a front-row seat to the world of sailing. For many campers that itself, quite rightly, can be a transformative and lasting experience. The staff provide an introduction to the sailing, both as sport and recreation, though also an introduction to all the places that sailing can take you, literally and figuratively. Director Lisa Shishis has experience in national and international sailing, and brings that experience to the camps. Fun is prized, as it should be, but campers also learn skills and apply them within a setting that recognises, implicitly, their value.

Director's Message


Lisa Shishis, Youth Director

Welcome to the Britannia Yacht Club Junior Lean to Sail Program.  My name is Lisa Shishis and I have been lucky enough to be the Youth Director ay BYC for three years. In this capacity, I oversee the Britannia Junior Club, learn-to-sail programs, high performance race team and optimist race team. I have been actively involved in youth sailing as a parent for over 10 years at the Club, Provincial, National and International levels of sailing.

The fundamental objective of the BYC Junior Club program is to instill a love of sailing in every sailor that joins our program. Ideally, we want our sailors to have fun, create long-lasting friendships, learn about teamwork and become more self-sufficient. Sailing is a life long skill that can be enjoyed any where.    If you or your child are curious about sailing, then please email me at [email protected]
