Self Learning Outcomes 

An exciting platform for learning

Through our Summer Camp programme "Sail Camps" and the "Education@Sea" programmes, Quaystage Training aims to provide a platform for young people to challenge, stretch and develop themselves in a safe environment. We provide water-based activity and skill-development residential adventure holiday programmes of between 3 day weekends,  7 -14 day adventures and upto 21 days.  

Our Yacht flotilla and Tall Ship based adventures provide a young person with the opportunity to broaden their horizons, discover their potential and learn about the environment around us.


Educational experience

Full encouragement will be given to young people to engage in learning about their natural environment. Subjects such as Marine Biology, Science and Geography are among the many that can be delivered on board.

  • As part of mixed gender teams of 8-28 young people, a young person will enjoy the unique hands on experience of crewing and living on board our sailing vessels.
  • Whilst on board, the young people learn and establish an understanding of community and friendship.

Young people find themselves in an non-contrived environment which encourages:

  • teamwork
  • development of social skills
  • increased self-belief and awareness.
