Mariners and Portsmouth Adventure Application


**Prior sailing experience required**

The application is now available for 2019 Mariner I, II and III sessions and Portsmouth Adventure Camp (June 9-29).  You may apply for one or both programs. Both of these programs offer high adventure on the water. We strongly encourage you to select as many sessions of Mariner that you could attend to give you a greater chance of being selected.

Priority for both programs is given to older, qualified applicants and to those applicants who have not already completed the programs so as many campers as possible will eventually have the opportunity to participate in these popular Don Lee camps.You may apply for as many programs as you are age-qualified for, including if you have already completed Mariner or Portsmouth, but the likelihood of selection to repeat those programs is greatly reduced. Applicants must have completed 9th grade by summer camp to apply. Complete program descriptions can be found under Summer Camps/Camp Programs.

The deadline for all applications is Friday, October 26, 2018. If you apply for Mariner and/or Portsmouth and the Leader in Training program, we will assume the Leadership in Training program is your first choice for summer 2019.

We realize for many who have been affected by Hurricane Florence, it may currently be unclear as to when your school year will end and therefore challenging to make your selections for summer camp. Please move ahead as best you can and be reminded that all program fees, with the exception of the non-refundable portion of the deposit, are refundable when we receive notice of cancellation in writing prior to April 1, 2019. We want to work with our families as we move together through this challenging time of hurricane recovery.

Applicants will be notified no later than Friday, November 9, 2018. At that time, families will be required to go in and  register their camper for the program and put down a deposit to hold the space. If you have additional questions, please email us at
