One additional thought along those lines: If the camps are all booked this summer, consider investing in a rowing/sailing dinghy that you can tow along behind you. They provide a great opportunity for kids to putter around and learn rowing and sailing while the mothership is anchored up. It's also nice for kids to get off the boat and go explore on their own, and gives them a break form their parents (and vice versa ).
