Each summer the GRYC offers a Youth Program consisting of four 2-week sessions for children ages 9-16. As well as providing aquatic oriented fun and games, the Youth Program offers an opportunity for participants to earn Sail Canada White Sail and Bronze sailing certifications. For details see the Sail Canada.

For the last 3 years, GRYC has sent a team to The Fruit Bowl at the Hudson Yacht Club. This is a highly recommended, but not required, activity for Bronze sailors, combining fun, learning and racing in the gorgeous setting of the Hudson Yacht Club.
