Youth Boating Day Camps are a great way to spend summer days having fun and making new friends. All of 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 both on the water and off. It’s high-energy outdoor fun on the water, which includes a lot of transitioning and a variety of activities.
Our camper to camp staff ratio is 8 to 1, allowing campers and counselors to follow social distancing guidelines while still promoting safe personal interactions. Each camper is assigned a specific counselor during the week’s session. Counselors are expected to supervise campers specifically grouped with them and to keep a general awareness of the activities of other counselors’ groups.
Hands-on experience is the best way to learn to paddle, so our emphasis is on learning by doing. Weather permitting, kids will be boating 90% of the time and should wear shorts, shirts, rubber-soled shoes (no flip flops), and should bring other clothing appropriate for the forecast.
Week-long camps run Monday through Friday, 10 am – 4 pm. Extended day option is available for drop-off as early as 8:30 am Monday – Friday and pick up as late as 5:30 pm Monday – Thursday for an additional fee.
