Darien Sail & Power Squadron is gearing up for the 18th annual Boat Camp.

Boat Camp will take place Friday, July 25, from the Noroton Yacht Club, with assistance from Person-to-Person. The event introduces local underprivileged children to Long Island Sound, using the resources squadron members and boating friends.

More than 100 campers and counselors are expected to participate, according to the squadron.

Volunteers may participate as boat "captains," as onboard boat "crew" or as onshore logistical support, which includes distributing supplies, making youngsters feel comfortable and as escorts in getting the campers down to the docks and on board the fleet of boats.

The squadron needs powerboats that are more than 18 feet with at least a six-person capacity.
