Learn to Paddle During our 2019 Summer Paddle Camp

A fun and educational paddling camp designed for children ages 14 and under.  Kids will paddle and explore Lake Tahoe while learning to love and appreciate the outdoors.  They arrive with a purpose to learn how to paddle human power watercraft and leave at the end of the session with a love and passion for paddling and living a healthy lifestyle. In fact, they will be able to develop paddling skills for stand-up paddleboarding, outrigger canoeing, surfskiing and kayaking and they’ll learn all the essentials of water safety.

The Paddle Camp is an initiation to the sport of paddling, with the introduction to stand-up paddleboarding, outrigger canoe, prone paddleboarding, and surfski kayaking. A natural progression to attend the Watergrom camp, Junior Waterman Camp and Team Tahoe Waterman.
