We believe being active and outdoors in childhood fosters a healthy lifestyle and environmental respect later in life. We are excited to see so many young paddlers on the water.
Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) programs that promote confidence, courage, friendship, and fun. In these weekly classes, kids will learn how to stand up paddle, and improve their SUP techniques and fitness. They will laugh, socialize, and maybe even fall in! This program also teaches SUP safety and equipment. Learn a lifelong, healthy sport; gain confidence, and be active!
Each class will focus on a new activity to develop Stand Up Paddleboarding skills. Activities Include:
Basics of Stand Up Paddleboarding
Advanced Skills & Safety
Exploring the various types of SUP (Racing, Fitness, Yoga and Touring)
Paddling all types of boards (race, tour, inflatable, tandem)
PREREQUISITE: No previous SUP experience required.
EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS: Clothing for all types of weather conditions and your lifejacket if you have one (if not, we have you covered). We will provide all equipment (boards, paddles, leashes, PFDs).
WHAT TO BRING: Paddlers should wear clothes they are comfortable getting wet in (swimsuit, shorts, etc), , sunscreen, hat, towel, and water bottle.

SUP Kids Camp
We launched the first Stand Up Paddle Kids camp in Ottawa in 2012.
We were the exclusive Stand Up Paddle Kids Camp partner to Ottawa's Dovercourt Recreation Centre for Adventure and Paddle camps from 2013-2018. We've provided a number of Ottawa and the Valley Kids with Stand up Paddling from Ivivia Girls, to YMCA Summer Camp,& The At Risk Youth Camp. If your Ottawa Area Kids Camp would like to offer Stand Up Paddling please contact us earlier in the year to make it happen that summer!
Our own Ottawa Stand Up Paddle Kids summer camps have sold out each year!
