Our signature camp – Wind-N-Waves is designed to get children ages 9-16 to learn a variety of fun watersports including windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, canoeing and standup paddleboarding. Not only will campers walk away from a fun week of camp, they will build skills and gain watersports safety knowledge to build competency and confidence while out on the water.

Based on our signature camp, Wind-N-Waves, our Junior version is designed for children ages 5 to 8! Our biggest goal is for children to have fun and feel comfortable participating in a variety of fun watersports including windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, canoeing and standup paddleboarding!


Board Sports

Ages 12-16

This camp is all about some of our favorite board sports, including wakeboarding and wakesurfing! We spend time on the boat learning more advanced watersports skills through wakeboarding and wakesurfing, along with our field trip to Roseland Wakepark! When it’s windy we will continue building our windsurfing skills with our new kids sails and beginner boards and the non-windy days will be filled with mellow SUPing and games on the water!
