Kids'''' residential sail camps?

Our 11 year old may want his own boat this year. He sat in on ASA classes with us, knows a pretty good dose of sail theory, and is a passable swimmer. My wife and I can''t get away much this summer but our boy would like to get to a sail-focused camp ... not a regular summer camp where a few hours of canoeing a week are mixed in with nature hikes and leatherwork, etc. He''s also a good trveler & has been away from home often enough. We live in the southwest (Nuevo Mexico), so someplace in the southwest (TX - CO - CA etc.) would work better than down east. Any ideas, experience, etc.?

The New York Times Magazine often has lots of camps from all over the country advertised in the back page or two. Worth a trip to the Library, anyway.

Mystic Seaport is sending me their brochure.
Unfortunately, many of their weeks are filled.There''s also a 4/6-week camp at a private school in the Massachusetts back-bay area. National general-interest magazine / newspaper ads aren''t very targeted. Many tall ship or high-adventure programs are age-restricted to teens.
I could also look in a couple of camping directories, though that is not the easy way to find such a place and wouldn''t tell me much about the focus, quality, or reputation of a camp. Lots of places have day camps.

If you can reconsider on the location, there are two excellent camps in NC - Camp Sea Gull (boys) and Camp Sea Farer (girls). They provide rather extensive boat handling and sailing education.
