Summer SUP Camps

Spreading our love of SUP with the next generation of paddlers!

Our original summer camp offers a full day of fun for kids of all paddling skill levels. Campers spend a week learning basic paddling techniques, open water safety, how to read basic condition reports, and head out on small paddling adventures. Campers also play games, do arts and crafts, go on hikes and hang out on the beach playing and swimming!

Our popular camps are open to all kids who can swim, regardless of prior experience with water sports, and provide the best way to get your kids outdoors during the summer!

All programs feature both water and land activities, nature lessons, games, safety, and, of course, stand up paddling! We promote team-building and leadership skills, provide an environment where kids can foster new friendships, and empower kids to live an active lifestyle through outdoor aquatic sports. 

Our camps are nonstop fun and adventure from start to finish with many opportunities to explore and paddle the beautiful San Francisco Bay. We provide the board, leash, and a sanitized paddle, PFD (lifejacket), and wetsuit. All camps are run out of our Alameda shop on Ballena Bay or Alameda's Encinal Boat Ramp. Learn more about our SUP Camps below to decide which program is best for your child this summer. Don’t hesitate to join a waitlist, as we are constantly adding new camps to meet our always high summer demand.

Rest assured your kids are safely having the time of their lives while remaining COVID-safe due to distance from each other on and off the water. Select the Health and Safety tab below for more information.
