Do we have to pay an entry fee to get into Union Reservoir?

No. Your entry fee to drop off and pick up your child is included in the Camp Tuition. Advise the gate attendant that you are with ABLE to Sail. If you plan to stay for the day, you will need to pay and put a Daily parks Pass in your windshield.

Where do you meet…Where do I drop off and pick up?

We meet at the Blue Pavillion next to the playground, and behind the swim beach on the southwest corner of the Reservoir. After entry past the attendant, go over the small bridge, go immediately right, and follow that road until you see the playground.  We will be directly in front of you at that time.

Will there be camp if its raining?

We will typically have camp unless it is raining heavily in the morning AND FORECAST TO RAIN ALL DAY. We will notify you by phone no later than 9:00 a.m.  We will use Fridays as a make up day in the event of cancellation.

What about afternoon storms?

If heavy thunderstorms move in later in the day and don’t look to end or ease before 3pm, we may call you to come and pick up your camper early. There is not sufficient shelter for these types of storm at Union Reservoir. Someone will remain with your child until they are picked up, or other arrangements made with the instructor.

What are the Instructors Qualifications?

Our Instructors are US Sailing Certified Instructors and have certifications in CPR and First Aid. Camp Counselors are NOT US Sailing Certified Instructors, but have experience sailing, and are well versed and experienced working with youth in various other recreational capacities.  They, too, are Certified in CPR and First Aid, and may hold Lifeguarding certifications as well. We also have several counselors in training who are under 18 assisting with our classes.

What is your refund policy?

We will issue a full refund if you cancel more than 30 days before camp. We will issue a 50% refund if you cancel 15-29 days before camp. We are unable to issue refunds within 14 days of camp and for no-shows, but will make every effort to place your child in another camp that same season where possible. We appreciate your understanding.
