Watkins Island Adventure Camp


Introducing the NEW
Watkins Island Adventure Camp

With the predicted changes in water level at the Lake this summer,

we are offering a modified camp for Juniors at BLYC.

Camp will still focus on water safety, aquatic activities, and sailing, but will also include more FUN activities, crafts, etc.

Camps will be three-days long - 2 days of shore-side fun and activities and one day on the water.  Should conditions at Buckeye Lake be unfavorable to get out on the water, we will take an away trip to Dillon State Park that day.



Session 1
June 22-24

Session 2
June 29 - July 1

Session 3
July 6-8

Member cost for all camps is $150 per participant
($200 for non-members)
(10% off additional sessions for same camper)

for the application

Camp runs from 9:00-4:00 each day
Pack Lunch or Purchase from the BLYC Pool Bar

We are pleased to announce that Caroline Maiden is returning this year as our Head Instructor and Race Team Coach.  Many of the Instructors from 2014 are also returning.


We are looking for canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, etc. that members may wish to loan for camp this summer.  If you have a human-propelled watercraft you are willing to let us use, please contact Governor Mac.

The BLYC Race Team is also in need of a Laser Sailboat this season.  If you have a Laser you are willing to sell, rent, or loan to a BLYC Junior so they can race this summer, please contact Governor Mac.

Statement from the Commodore

The Buckeye Lake Yacht Club was established in 1906, for the purpose of;

  • Promoting Yachting & Aquatic Sports
  • Cultivation of Sociability among Members
  • Improvement of Buckeye Lake for Boating Purposes

Our Mission Statement still defines the Buckeye Lake Yacht Club, today.

Regarding the recent developments of the lake level, the Buckeye Lake Yacht Club is committed to work with all those involved to help find a balance that includes public safety, environmental, recreational, and lifestyle concerns.

The Buckeye Lake Yacht Club has experienced many changes and challenges during the past 109 years.  With strong member support and participation, we expect to be here another 100 years.

Once we know what to expect regarding the lake level and any boating restrictions, we will move forward accordingly.

The Yacht Club is and will be open, as we make plans for the spring and summer season.    

The Board of Governors are working hard to continue the Yacht Club traditions and to provide the membership with a great experience at the BLYC.


Come in and enjoy your Club! 

Commodore Charles Wadley


Good Neighbor Committee Update

Every year for the past 12 years, the BLYC Good Neighbor Committee has solicited donations from the BLYC membership to help buy Christmas presents for needy children in the Buckeye Lake area.  This year thanks to your generosity, we were able to expand our efforts and purchase gift cards for needy students at Lakewood High School in addition to our traditional party for the younger children.  Their letters of thanks are truly heartwarming.
