Youth Boating Day Camps are a great way to spend summer days having fun and making new friends. Our camps strive to teach safe boating in a fun learning environment by instructing and reinforcing boating safety and skills. Our goal is to teach campers both independence and teamwork and to promote self-confidence through paddle sports. It’s high-energy outdoor fun on the water, which includes a lot of transitioning and a variety of activities.
Hands-on experience is the best way to learn to water safety and paddling, so our emphasis is on learning by doing. We’ve got plenty of kayaks for your young adventurer, and campers can’t wait to try their sea legs on a stand-up paddleboard (SUP)! Paddlers will be in their own single kayaks most of the time, working on how to hold a paddle and perfecting their strokes. But some days it’s nice to paddle with a friend or two, and we’ll try our hands at kayaking in doubles or paddling a canoe.
Weather permitting, kids will be boating 90% of the time but rain or shine, our campers will be having loads of fun! Campers should dress appropriately for the weather and wear rubber-soled shoes (no flip-flops).
Our camper-to-camp staff ratio is 8 to 1, promoting personal interactions between campers and counselors. Each camper is assigned to a specific counselor during each session. Campers will participate in small and large group activities. Counselors supervise the children specifically grouped with them and keep a general awareness of the activities of other counselors’ groups.
