BIG WILLIE'S WILD SUMMER DAY CAMP
Our goal is to help children be comfortable and smart on the water!
All of our students will learn the basics and skill development in kayaking and paddle boarding. Students take a training course on equipment safety and drowning prevention.
Our focus during students’ daily instruction period is our Paddle Sport Education for Youth program. This is a national research-based educational curriculum designed to introduce youth to the joys and skills of paddling! This curriculum is provided by the American Canoe Association and the American Association for Physical Activity and Recreation.
Our classes have a 1:5 student to instructor ratio. This gives students a chance to develop skills and gain confidence with personalized instruction and coaching.
Cost for active day camp sessions is $85
With payment of camp fee all transportation costs, instruction, equipment, water and two snacks per day are included.

SUMMER CAMP BENEFITS
1. Make New Friends
At camps, you get a chance to find like-minded people, and it is really easy to build a friendship with a person who has the same interests.
2. Independence and Growth
Camp gives your kids a chance to get out of their comfort zone and take some risks with their new skills. Nothing brings out and tests independence more than giving them time away on their own.
3. Mental and Physical Stimulation
Get kids off of the couch, out of the COVID19 slump and into some great outdoors fun.

Big Willie’s believes strongly in the value of the camp experience and wants to ensure that every child has the opportunity to attend camp.
We understand that many families cannot afford to send their child to camp. This is why we have established the Send a Child to Camp Fund as an opportunity for caring individuals or organizations who also believe in the value of camp to support camp scholarships.
