Sailing & Paddling

Sailing

Ahoy maties! Imagine the feeling of gliding across Franklin Lake at the helm of a sailboat. Camp’s fleet consists of two Hobie Wave catamarans, three LaserPerformance “Bug” sailboats, and one Hobie 14 catamaran. Participate in a sailing regatta and hone your competitive sailing skills. While we cannot promise you a visit from Johnny Depp, we can promise you waves of fun as the fresh air carries you across the water.

 

Paddling

Camp Nicolet’s Smallcraft program gives you the opportunity to learn all about canoeing, kayaking, and windsurfing. Take a paddling adventure to Tiger’s Tail and discover this giant sandbar at the other end of the lake.

Stand-up-paddling, or SUP, is also very popular. Jump on one of our six SUP boards, grab a paddle, and whisk your way along the beautiful shoreline.

For a real adventure, try your hand at one of Camp Nicolet’s four Hi-Fly windsurfer rigs, with sails varying in size from small (easy to lift) or larger sails for the more experienced who want higher performance.



“My wonderful parents have given me many gifts in my life, but I am most thankful for the gift of camp which I now share with my daughter. Nicolet taught me the meaning of trying new things, hard work, and gave me my most treasured lifelong friendships.” – Camp Nicolet Parent/Alumna
