Kayaking and Stand Up Paddleboard Lesson Camps

Paddlesports lesson camp is a fun activity for children to enjoy being on the water. It will help build balance, strength and most importantly their self confidence on the water. Paddlers will enjoy the challenge of learning new ways to enjoy the water while educating them on how to respect the environment. Each day is a whole new adventure with creative water games such as water polo, island hopping, treasure hunting, paddle racing and any other games children create on their own.  Add kayaking or Stand up Paddleboarding lesson camp to your child's schedule today.
