Paddle Adventure Camp

Paddle Sports Camp is a fun, educational, and active day camp located in Shoreline Park. Take advantage of our beautiful lake perfect for introducing kids to watersports.

With our new paddling camp, we will introduce campers to the exciting world of boating and teach them how to be safe and have fun. This camp encompasses a wide range of sports including kayaking, canoeing, and standup paddleboarding. Our experienced and knowledgeable instructors are eager to pass their love of the sport and wealth of knowledge on to a new generation of paddlers.

Our campers will start on sit-on-top kayaks and learn the skills they need to explore our lake and beyond. Techniques include skills such as the draw, pry, figure-eight and "C" strokes. We also teach campers safety skills to carry them through wherever they go. These will include weather and tides, paddle signals, capsize assisting and self-rescue techniques.

While education is nice, kids come for the fun and stay for the friendship. In this interactive camp, you can expect team games, competition and camaraderie with the help of double kayaks and canoes. Games include Kayak polo, blindfolded relay races, obstacle courses and much more!

A lunch catered by the American Bistro is included with this camp. Lunch selections vary by day and include a vegetarian option each day.

To Keep in Mind: Campers should be comfortable swimming and treading water, be able to submerge their heads under water, behave prudently if a capsize occurs, and be in adequate physical shape to engage in the Camp’s activities. If in doubt, please contact your doctor. In addition Campers and/or parents must notify a staff member regarding any medical condition of which the instructor should be made aware. Although you may provide your own, Shoreline does provide PFDs (life vests) and wetsuits.

What To Bring

Every day Campers should bring a towel, bathing suit and two sets of dry, comfortable clothes (They will get WET). In addition, they should also bring a jacket or fleece, lots of sun protection, a bottle of water, and non-skid/non-marking shoes to wear while on the boats (Tennis shoes, aqua socks, or Teva sandals work great!). No flip-flops allowed.

Hats and sunglasses are recommended but not required. If wearing glasses, Campers should bring a lanyard to secure glasses around their head. Single-use lockers are available and cost $2 (recommended for securing valuables).

Important: On the first day of camp, please arrive 15-20 minutes before the start time to register and sign-in

Please Note: Also, parents, no pets, including dogs, may enter the park, even if they are inside a vehicle when dropping off and picking up campers.
