Whether you’re new to Paddle Boarding and Kayaking or not, you will make wonderful memories in our beautiful surroundings.
We have weekly summer camps throughout July and August, these camps run daIly from 09.00 – 11.00 and are aimed at children and teens from ages of 10 -16. Activities included in camps are stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, water safety, beach games, and general mayhem!
Kids love our summer camps and their parents do too! We know how important it is to have fun when learning a new sport and that’s what we focus on during our summer camp sessions. Children and teenagers aged 10 to 16 years can try their hand at a mix of exciting activities such as stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, water safety, ecology, beach games and general mayhem. All children taking part in our camps are split into groups of a similar age.
Our qualified instructors will make sure that the kids are having a great time in a fun and safe environment while they are with us.
Whether your kids have lots of water sports experience or none, as long as they can swim and are comfortable in the water, the camp is a great opportunity for them to learn new skills and spend time on the water with friends (old and new).
