Walk on water at Mike's Paddle Kids SUP Summer Camp! Explore beautiful Ballena Bay, Alameda while we learn to stand up paddle board. Breathtaking views of San Francisco, underwater friends, and the summer sun shining down on this fun little island are just a few of the perks for this week-long, full-day camp.

Open to boys and girls ages 7 to 16, this camp will provide all paddling instruction, promote team-building and leadership skills, and foster a life-long love of living an active lifestyle through outdoor aquatic sports. Summer camp features both water and land activities, nature lessons, the history of stand up paddle boarding, information on gear/equipment, and of course - how to SUP!!

Mike Wang, our head coach, has 16+ years of paddling experience including kayaking, canoeing, and SUP. Mike and our professionally trained, enthusiastic camp leaders are excited to make this a summer your child will not forget!
