All SUP Camps are lead by an American Canoe Association (ACA) Stand UpPaddle board instructor and certified lifeguard. In addition, these camps will offer your child the chance to learn about the various aquatic habitats found in Virginia Beach. We strive to ensure all campers have a fun, educational and safe experience. Each camp has the kids on the paddle boards, learning proper paddle strokes and techniques, water safety and rescue tactics and getting up close to as much of the local wildlife that they are comfortable with. On the last day of the camp, we have the kids complete a long distance paddle and mock rescue; this ensures they meet all the ACA SUP level 1-2 standards. Upon completion, each participating SUP Camper receives an official ACA Trained SUP Card.
Our camps are limited to 5 SUP’ers, and daily activities are dependent on water/weather conditions. Camps are divided into age ranges to best accommodate the different abilities of different aged children. Camps are held either at the Lynnhaven inlet or the Chesapeake Bay (near Buoy 44). Site selection is based on wind and water conditions.
