We welcome your child aboard the American Pride for a truly unique and exciting camp experience. The American Pride is a historic, three-masted schooner that relives the "Golden Age of Sail" with each voyage. Each year thousands of school children come aboard to participate in learning adventures that cannot be replicated in the classroom. Our educational curriculum includes living history, sail training and scientific programs.

Our campers have the opportunity to experience the best of the programs during the 5 days spent aboard the American Pride. As members of ASTA (American Sail Training Assn.) we have a crew eager and able to teach all aspects of sailing while we are underway. The ship is fully insured and U.S. Coast Guard Certified for up to 100 passengers. All modern safety equipment is carried aboard and the crew are trained in CPR and first aid.
