About Our Camp Programs
Embark on an unforgettable summer adventure with FLX Adventure Camp, nestled in the heart of the picturesque Finger Lakes region. Our unique watersports programs are specially designed to blend exhilarating fun with educational experiences, creating the perfect balance for an adventurous summer!
An Adventure Awaits: Our diverse range of watersports activities offers something for everyone – from the tranquility of kayaking and canoeing to the thrill of windsurfing and sailing. Our signature Wind-N-Waves camps are a haven for those eager to delve into the world of watersports. And for those craving more dynamic action, our Boardsports program is just the ticket, with opportunities to master kneeboarding, wakeboarding, and wakesurfing!
Mindful of the Adventure’s Nature: While we immerse ourselves in the joy of watersports, we are always aware of the inherent risks these activities present. Our approach is centered around a mindful and prepared engagement with the outdoors. We don’t promise absolute safety – a concept that’s elusive in any outdoor setting – but we do promise vigilance, preparedness, and a commitment to managing risks. Our experienced instructors are not just enthusiasts; they are trained professionals in risk management and carry a deep understanding of outdoor dynamics.
More Than Just Counselors: Our staff are the backbone of our program. They’re equipped with extensive training in paddlesports, windsurfing, sailing, and more, adhering to the highest standards in the watersports industry. Their role goes beyond supervision; they’re mentors, guides, and safety specialists, all rolled into one.
Certified and Approved: Proudly recognized as an approved Tompkins County Health Department Summer Camp, our program undergoes a rigorous process to align with New York State’s Health Department Camp guidelines. This ensures that our staff, facilities, and programs not only meet but exceed the established standards for camp operations.
Join Us for a Summer of Growth and Adventure: At FLX Adventure Camp, we’re dedicated to creating an environment where campers can explore, learn, and grow. Our watersports programs are more than just a series of activities; they’re a journey towards building confidence, responsibility, and a deep appreciation for the great outdoors.

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!
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!
