We will meet our campers at the Gillson Park (directions included) kayak launch at the start time on most days including the first day of camp. Please be sure to arrive on time so that we can get started on our full morning of exciting activities! Once everyone has arrived we’ll start the program with group games that will energize us for the morning! We’ll spend some time on land as we learn about the essential gear and safety guidelines of kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding (SUP). Once everyone is comfortable with the equipment and safety guidelines, we’ll get on the water! Your youth will apply what we’ve learned on land in the water! Through games that will incorporate their paddle strokes, map reading skills, and other essentials of on water paddle sports. To make sure that each camper is getting the most out of his/her Water week camp experience, our skilled staff will provide the best learning environment.
