For over 35 years, the Mountain Lakes Sailing Association (MLSA) has taught children to sail in a fun and safe environment. We offer a Learn to Sail Sunfish program on Island Beach for residents of Mountain Lakes and Boonton Township.  The camp runs Monday through Thursday in two sessions:  9:00-11:00am and 11:30am-1:30pm under the direction of Dr. Bob Fehon. 

All children need to be at least eight years old, have passed the Borough’s beach test and possess a valid beach pass.  Campers without a boat can rent one for a small additional fee.

After they’ve learned to sail, MLSA can open doors at other summer sailing programs on Spruce Run Reservoir and Raritan Bay. Lastly, former summer “campers” also go on to be hired as Counselors in the camp, gaining valuable work experience.

Sailing is a life-long sport and we hope you will embrace this unique opportunity that has been a vital part of a Mountain Lakes summer for generations!
