A summer camp is eligible for the FVQ Summer Camp status, rather than that of a Sailing School, if the only sailing activities offered by the camp are introduction-to-sailing activities that represent less than 5 hours within the weekly camp program. In the event that camp’s sailing activities are of a level higher than the introduction or that they represent 5 hours or more of the weekly activities offered to participating youth, then the summer camp will be eligible for sailing school status, rather than that of a summer camp, and sailing courses will have to be taught by sailing instructors, rather than sailing activity guides. A camp that is not recognized as a sailing school, cannot offer the CANSail program and can teach the FVQ Introduction to sailing program only if it is registered as a FVQ Summer Camp.

Upon receipt of its payment and of the previous season’s annual report, the Federation issues the annual Registered Camp certificate that sanctions the introduction-to-sailing operations of the camp, if its file is up-to-date for the new year of operation.
