"The Brendan Sailing program showed my son he could win no matter the challenge! I have been telling him for years, now he believes it! I would encourage all parents to give this gift to their child, the gift of confidence."


- Parent of Brendan Sailor, 2019

"Spending 2 weeks with this group does wonders for [my son's] overall physical and mental health. He craves social interaction, as an extrovert, and it is so nice that he gets 2 weeks of positive social interaction, along with so much physical activity."

"Great experience, great opportunity! Our son was able to show his dad at the end of camp how to sail a boat! How awesome!"

- Parent of Brendan Sailor, 2019

"Brendan Sailing camp was an amazing experience for [my duaghter]. She had no experience whatsoever with being on the water and this amazing camp built a lot of confidence in her and she can't wait to learn more and attend camp again next year."

Brendan Sailing has provided our son with a unique adventure. The counselors and students are welcoming, accepting, and encouraging of each other; what a positive environment! We are amazed at how quickly he learned, and even more amazed at his confidence in his new sailing abilities! Thank you!

"Brendan Sailing changed the trajectory of my sons life. The physical, mental and emotional challenges created a stronger young man. He feels capable of finding a way to solve his issues. 'Mom, if I can flip a Laser over and sail it, I can do that!' I am forever grateful for the team at Brendan Sailing for giving my son this gift."

- Parent of Brendan Sailor, 2019

Brendan Sailing is a wonderful opportunity for children with learning differences. Highly trained staff, low student to instructor ratio, quality outdoor time away from electronics, opportunities for social and intellectual growth."

"The program was so amazingly supportive of me sending my child across the country to participate. They worked to get him from the airport out to the facility about 2 hours away - really going out of their way to ensure he could participate. My son reports that he had a really great time - enjoying the variety of arts, activities and sailing in warm water (vs our 50 degree wetsuit conditions!)."

- Parent of Brendan Sailor, 2019

"My son has had poor experiences with summer camps previously. The staff at Brenden Sailing went above and beyond to make him feel included and confident! Their program is a true gem!"

"Our kiddo gained confidence, leadership and sailing skills all in one week! The teacher to student ratio and the range of activities was just right for our child, while the structure and routine provided comfort. The empathy and humor of the teachers helped him feel at ease in the sailing space. Thank you!"

- Parent of Brendan Sailor, 2019

"Brendan Sailing helped build the confidence in my child, not only to drive a sailboat but also to take me sailing with her. Many people do not respect that some children may need more time to learn and can get distracted... Brendan instructors were parent and understanding with her."

"My son gained a sense of confidence that extended to his day-to-day. Before Brendan he was shy, and the boy we picked up from camp was more engaging, happy, and relaxed. I attribute this not just to learning how to sail, but also to the instructors he worked with and the new friends he made"

- Parent of Brendan Sailor 2018

“Brendan Sailing has given my son a sense of accomplishment that no other sports program has provided. The instructors taught him how to sail and had faith in him, allowing him to build self-confidence and grow his self-esteem.”
