KIDS SUP SUMMER CAMP

 

Walk on water at Mike's Paddle Kids SUP Summer Camp! Explore beautiful Ballena Bay of 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 9 to 14, 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. We will have on land as well as in the water activities, teaching the kids about our ecosystem, the history of stand up paddle boarding, all about our boards and other equipment, and of course - how to SUP!!

Mike Wang, our head coach, has 16 years of paddle experience including kayaking, canoeing, and stand up paddling. Mike, along with our other trained and enthusiastic camp leaders, are excited to make this a Summer your child will not forget!

This year, we are introducing a special Alameda Waterman's Camp between 7/10/2017 and 7/14/2017 for those who have participated in our summer camp before and are looking to have a more intensive and competitive experience. We are going to introduce the sport of Paddlefit, SUP racing, outrigger canoe, kayak and dragon boat! Please contact Mike (mike@mikespaddle.com) if you have any questions.
