Each cabin is staffed with two counselors who live in the cabin with their campers. It is the primary responsibility of these counselors to ensure the well-being of your child. A number of age-related cabins form a village, led by an experienced Village Head. Counselors and Village Heads work with your camper, providing encouragement while helping them grow socially, emotionally, and physically each day.

The Cory Fleet

Camp Cory’s sailboat fleet (including JY15s, RS Quests, and American 14 and 18s) and sailing instructors are competitive with those at yacht clubs and collegiate settings. During three select sessions, campers will participate in Period Races. Winners of the Period Races are invited back later in the summer to race in Camp Cory’s Historic Cups Regatta. This year’s fleet upgrade was donated through a generous donation from Rochester Community Boating.

A Rich History

Maijgren Village prides itself on its focus on personal accomplishment, teamwork, and tradition. Campers learn to become competent crew members working under the direction of their skippers- older Maijgren Village campers with more sailing experience. This idea of trusting the members of your team trickles down into village life, where campers spend their time interacting with all the members of the village, not just their cabin. The traditions and history of the past are important and become a part of the teachings in the village.

The more time spent in Maijgren Village, the more campers can accomplish. In our two-week block sessions, campers have the chance to gain infinitely more knowledge and confidence. The first odd week will focus on technical skills and practicing maneuvers while the following even week will focus on racing competitively and working as a cohesive skipper and crew unit. Campers will stay at camp during the weekend between weeks to increase the amount of sailing instruction they receive and create more meaningful memories with their peers. The first and last weeks of the summer will remain single week sessions with no holdover.
