Schedule Options

For each week, we offer All-Day (9:45am – 4:00pm), Morning (9:45am – 12:30pm), and Afternoon (1:15pm – 4:00pm) sessions.

There is a 45-minute lunch break from 12:30 to 1:15. Bag lunches for sailors will be available from the LTYC (look for this as a registration option), students can pack their own lunch, or they can walk into downtown Harbor Springs to grab lunch.

Each week at LTS is full of activities beyond just the Morning and Afternoon sessions.  Bug Racing on Wednesdays at 5:00 is a particular highlight. Or come out and see our young racers compete every Friday afternoon in the harbor.

 See our full Summer Calendar for everything we do.


 Summer 2017 Fees

[ The 2018 fees will be set in early 2018; they are likely to be quite close to the 2017 fees.]

The LTS Board of Directors has set the 2017 fees, below. As before, there are major discounts for taking more sessions: the more your sailor sails, the less the weekly fee.

Note that the discounted fees appear when you use the appropriate discount code at checkout, so be sure to sign up for all the weeks you want, and use the corresponding code when checking out.


LTS is committed to making our sailing programs available to as many as possible. Thanks to our generous donors, we have established a scholarship program that can help support students who need it.  See our Scholarship Page for more information and to apply for a scholarship.

Bag Lunch Program

Back by popular demand is the bag lunch program.  For $7 a day ($35 for the week), your sailor can have a lunch (sandwich, chips, cookie, water) delivered to the waterfront to eat with friends.  This program is made possible by our friends at the Little Traverse Yacht Club.  Look for this option when registering!

Photo of  Your Child Sailing

LTS is again offering the ability to purchase photos of your sailors during registration.  For $10 you get the digital file emailed to you at the end of the week. We hope this is an easy way to capture memories for years to come. Photos will be taken by our excellent staff photographer, Laura Holmes.  Check out examples of Laura’s work HERE.  Look for this option when registering!
