Sleepaway sailing camp in the Northeast?

I'm looking for a one to two week sleepaway sailing camp for my eleven year old son to go to this summer. When I was younger I'd go to a camp up near Deer Isle in Maine that was completely focused on sailing, all day, every day. Unfortunately, it looks like that camp no longer exists. There are a number of sleepaway camps that have "add-on" sailing programs, but sailing only happens for 2-3 hours out of the day. Last year we sent him to the Cornell Sailing Camp and he loved it, but it's basically a bunch of college kids taking the campers out for rides on the boats, or letting them take them themselves. There's little learning going on, and I'd like for my son to learn more. Mystic appears to have a one week camp. Does anyone know of any other sailing focused sleepaway camps in the Northeast?
