Donate to CAYSP
CAYSP, Camden Area Youth Seamanship Program, is a non-profit organization that welcomes all to come learn to row and sail in Camden Harbor. This program is hosted at the Camden Yacht Club. The mission of our non-profit is to offer rowing and sailing lessons to anyone, regardless of their ability to pay. We offer a generous scholarship package to help support this mission statement.
In addition, CAYSP is one of Maine’s largest rowing/sailing programs and with this comes the opportunity to learn in many directions. We have the Harbor Adventure and Ocean Explorer programs geared toward the student who is interested in marine related activities as well as boating. We also offer an extensive racing program that may expose racers to regattas throughout Maine and New England.
Finally, CAYSP holds the building of life-long friends in the highest of regard. Many of our current students have parents, family members and friends who had, in years past, participated in the sailing program at the yacht club. Most of our staff have grown up in the program and continue to return year after year. In general many who have history with the sailing program feel a deep connection to the yacht club. This, in part, is due to the strong bonds developed between people at CAYSP and these tend to carry over a lifetime.
Your donation will help support the learning and building of friendships for future students in CAYSP’s rowing and sailing program.
