Youth Paddlesports Camp
Date: July 11, 2017 - July 14, 2017
Event Description Give yourself a couple of free hours and your kids some paddling adventure with our Youth Paddlesports Camp Aurora. The Youth Paddlesports Camp Aurora is designed for kids 6-17. However, this age requirement is dependent upon being able to listen and follow direction. Some 12 year olds don’t listen as well as 7 year olds for example. We do reserve the right to remove any participant from the water that will not follow instructions as this poses a potential safety issue to the other participants as well as detracts from their experience. This 4 day camp will take place 10 AM – 12 PM each day at Jericho Lake. Kayaking and Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) concepts will be taught, providing participants the skills and confidence to safely and comfortably maneuver on the water. Forward, reverse, and sweep strokes will be introduced along with basic safety and rescue procedures. And on Day Four, Mom or Dad are invited to come out and paddle with the kids. A breakdown of the days activities are: Day 1: Introduction to kayaking basics using land and water instruction. Day 2: Introduction to SUP basics using land and water instruction Day 3: Kayaking for fun, using land and water games to reinforce the principles taught on day one, and provide your child an opportunity to practice what has been taught. Day 4: SUP for fun, using land and water games to reinforce the principles taught on day two, and provide your child an opportunity to practice what has been taught. There is a maximum class size of 8 kids for each of our Paddlesports Camps, with a minimum of four required. There will be two instructors on hand to teach and monitor so we maintain a 4:1 ratio. The price for this experience is $115 and includes all equipment, including life jacket, rental for one of the parents on the last day of camp, and a Rocktown Adventures Paddlesport Camp T-Shirt. The only pre-requisites are the ability to swim and desire to have a good time! To sign up for this experience please give the store a call at 630-506-5706 or sign up below.
