To the Parents and Sponsors of the Pacific Corinthian Youth Foundation Sailing Camp Students:


Since our program started in 1992, this is the first year it has been necessary to cancel the program for the season. Although the situation with COVID-19 is improving as far as social distancing, we are not in a position to schedule the sessions for 2020. The concern for the health of our students and their families requires the PCYF Board to make this decision.


This is disappointing to students, parents and the PCYF organization. We are already looking forward to being back on line for next season.  We thank you for your past participation and are anticipating seeing you in 2021. The remainder of this year will be a time for PCYF to continue to build the program and make it serve the community even better. We certainly will appreciate any suggestions and financial support you can give to make this happen.


If you have any questions about this notice, please contact us.
