Stand Up Paddleboarding Camp Mill Valley - 2nd to 7th - Day Camp

Stand up paddleboarding is loved for its convenience, overall strength building, and incredible views. Our Stand Up Paddleboarding Camp takes campers out on both flat-water and moving water where they experience the fun of paddling with scenic perspective while developing core strength. Under the guidance of our highly trained instructors, campers will learn basic strokes, rescue techniques, and water safety as they navigate beautiful bodies of water in the Bay Area.

Campers take on activities tailored to their abilities, progressing as they build proficiency and comfort. We group them by grade — 2nd – 4th graders or 5th – 7th graders — and give them plenty of individualized support as they develop confidence and deepen their technical skills, stroke by stroke.

Please note: SUP Day Camp campers should have some previous experience paddling in standing or moving water. In order to register for this program, campers MUST feel fully comfortable on open water and be comfortable being fully submerged in water for short periods of time.

If a camper does not meet this minimum skill requirement, we reserve the right to move a camper to a different program (if space is available) or remove the camper from the group and offer a credit. If you have any questions about whether SUP Day Camp is right for your child, please give us a call at (720) 759-2297.

Why Sign Up For Multiple Weeks?

Do you remember that old TV show Blues Clues? It was the most successful kids’ show of all time. Do you remember that book that your child insisted on reading over and over again? How could you forget it? Why was Blues Clues so successful and why did your child NEED to re-read that book? Because repetition promotes learning, growth, and empowerment.

Based on our experience (and a bunch of brain science), we know that multiple weeks of Avid camp will benefit your child – it will result in greater skill development, increased self-confidence, higher levels of risk assessment/environmental awareness, and an improved ability to connect socially with others.

WE TAKE SAFETY SERIOUSLY

While no outdoor adventure is totally risk-free, we work hard to keep your kids safe. Every activity starts with a discussion about the risks involved -- what they are, how to prevent them, how to respond if something goes wrong -- so kids learn how to approach challenges with intelligence and skill.
