Notice to all Dry Sail & Land Storage Enrollees

We will be improving the small boat parking areas over the next few weeks by marking boundaries and numbering spaces.

We will also be shuffling the parked boats to move the fleets together.  An updated parking layout will be sent as soon as we finish moving boats.  But feel free to contact Brian if you have trouble finding your boat.

In the meantime, please ensure your boat has the sticker for 2018 and look out for flat tires or torn covers.

Junior Week Volunteers Needed

Julie Ann Wash on

Junior Activities

Year after year, a common bit of feedback from parents are "it is so amazing how many people volunteer for the week", "We love coming here because it is not paid, bored staff running the camp, but volunteers passionate about what they do", and similar themed gushing about our volunteers. 

Without you, the FBYC Junior Week would not be the powerful experience it is.  Countless volunteers man safety boats, coordinate the Junior Shed supplies, manage the safe entry of boats in and out of the water on the ramps, give out bandaids and scoop ice cream!  We encourage you to look at the signup genius and see if there are a few hours where you can give your time, whether ...
