S.A.I.L. Summer 2020
(Sea Gull & Seafarer Adventures In Leadership Development)
July 5 – 17 and July 19 – 31
Sea Gull & Seafarer's Adventures in Leadership (S.A.I.L.) Program is a 12-day advanced rank and leadership development program for our 2020 accepted CILTs and eligible 13,14,15 and 16-year-old campers.
We are providing a summer experience for our CILTs that allows them to continue with rank achievement, learn how to instruct on their assigned activity, and participate in director-led leadership and character development sessions in preparation to become potential staff members.
For our oldest campers, 15-16-year-olds, we know the final camper summer at Camp is a special one. This unique opportunity will allow campers to continue to focus on skill development, leadership and character development, camp relationships and - putting a capstone on their time at Camp Sea Gull and Camp Seafarer as campers.
For eligible 13-14-year-olds, who are already actively engaged in our multi-year seamanship upper ranks (First Mate or Sunfish/Opti Master and above), we invite them to be a part of Camp this summer. They will continue their skill development, leadership and character development, strengthen their camp relationships and have fun just by being with us.
Without a doubt, this will be an unforgettable, once in a lifetime, impactful summer experience at Camp Sea Gull and Camp Seafarer!
You are eligible if you are a 2020 registered CILT, a 2020 registered camper who is 15 or 16 years old, or a 2020 registered camper who is 13 or 14 years old with the rank of First Mate or Sunfish/Opti Master, or anything higher. Unfortunately, we will not be able to serve campers from other countries this summer in the S.A.I.L. Program.

As we prepare your child for S.A.I.L 2020 it is very important that you complete your camper’s forms. Ensuring a safe summer will require a partnership among all of us, especially our parents. Our top priority is to keep our campers and staff safe. In light of our current reality with COVID-19, we have elevated our medical protocols, practices and guidelines using recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), American Camp Association (ACA), North Carolina State Health and Human Services, Pamlico County Health Department, and with guidance from our Camp Medical Advisory Committee. Our guidelines to keep Camp safe include requiring that all of these forms are completed.

How will the program work?
- Click here to watch our executive directors share information about the S.A.I.L. Program.
- S.A.I.L. will run at Camp Sea Gull. Both girls and boys will be onsite at Sea Gull, housed on separate sides of Camp. Aspects unique to each Sea Gull and Seafarer will be split by boys and girls.
- Cabins will be able to interact with each other, with social distancing requirements.
- Camp days will operate a lot like typical camp days during the summer. However, there will be a more intentional focus on skill development throughout each day.
- Most cabins will have eight campers and two counselors.
- Your child's cabin counselor will also be his/her activity counselor and his/her cabinmates will also be his/her activity partners. For example, your lightning trainer would be your cabin counselor and your fellow lightning trainees would be your cabin mates.
- Meals will be in the dining hall and there will also be cookouts at individual cabins.
