Summer 2017 Registration is underway!

Please read this page before registering via the link at the bottom of the page.

Trips are open to young people ages 13 - 25 and registrations must be submitted online. Trips often fill up very quickly and once full,
a waiting list is taken.

To complete the online form be prepared to provide:
  • Applicant's contact information including a primary email address for important trip information
  • Trip choices in order of preference - up to 10 (all trips). Make sure you are aware of the boarding and disembarking locations (FROM & TO) and dates of each trip!
  • A credit card for payment of the registration fee, is required in order to process the trip request.

All summer trips are 10 days and include meals, sail training materials park fees and taxes. Trip fees do not include travel to or from the boarding or disembarking location and trainees must make their own travel arrangements.

Through the generosity of our donors, SALTS is able to offer bursaries to those who wouldn't otherwise be able to sail.  Bursary funds are awarded to applicants who demonstrate financial need and/or circumstances which put the trip fee beyond their family's reach. At SALTS we understand that even middle income families are stretched when it comes to providing worthwhile opportunities for their kids and "financial need" may apply to those who wouldn't otherwise ask for help

TOTAL FEES without bursary $1965 Terms
Registration fee (all registrations) $150 Non-refundable once a trip has been offered.
Balance of trip fee without a bursary $1815 Payment of at least $605 due within 3 days of trip offer.  Trip fee balance is due by May 1st or within 10 days for new registrations received after April 24th.
Balance of trip fee with a bursary $150 - $1500 Bursary award notifications will include a payment schedule of the remaining trip fee after the award has been applied. The first payment will be due within 3 days of the bursary award notice.

Bursary applications can be requested during the online registration process and submitted once a trip offer is received.  Awards will be allocated and recipients will be notified each month until the funds are exhausted, so be sure to register and apply early!  

SALTS wishes to thank the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation for their generous support of our bursary program through a grant of $100,000 per year for five years!

Cancellation and Refund Policy

 The registration fee is refundable in the following circumstances:
  • We are not able to offer a trip for any of the applicant's trip choices for the summer 2017 season.
  • The applicant withdraws their trip request or removes their name from our waitlist (in writing) before we have sent a trip offer.  Trip choices must be kept up to date in order to avoid being offered a trip that is no longer suitable.
Trip fees (less the registration fee) are refundable when cancellation is received in writing prior to April 1st, 2017. After April 1st, trip fees are non-refundable.
