Summer SUP Camps

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

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, Alameda's Encinal Boat Ramp, or our Redwood City shop on Westpoint Harbor.

Inherently COVID-safe due to distance from each other on and off the water, rest assured your kids are safely having the time of their lives. Scroll down further to our Health and Safety section for more information.
