Kids Summer SUP Programs

Kids Summer SUP Programs Manchester Cape Ann

This summer children ages 9-15 are welcome to join Surfari on the water in our new Kids Summer SUP Program. As everyone knows during the summer, “Life is better on the water!” In the program, kids will be given the opportunity to explore and experience a new world on the water via stand up paddling. Activities will include stand up paddle boarding, swimming, treasure hunting, games, eco-awareness, water safety, races, contests, and much more. Every day will be a new adventure determined by the wind, tides and our imagination.

The Surfari experience focuses on all aspects of stand up paddling and ocean awareness and is designed to teach the novice or build on the skills of the more seasoned paddler. Not only will you gain confidence in paddling technique and new SUP disciplines but also learn about ocean safety, boating rules of the road, meteorology, care of equipment, and much more. Kids are able to access all the different styles and sizes of stand up boards from our large fleet to help them grow as paddlers as they develop their skills.

Our instructors are chosen for their passion for paddling and surfing as well as their enthusiasm for teaching others. During camp they will be led by Christian del Rosario who has been teaching surfing for eighteen years and teaching stand up paddling for ten years. All instructors are certified in CPR/first aid.

The Kids Summer SUP Program runs two days a week on Monday and Wednesday from 9:30am to 12:30pm. While we do have a gallon of the best waterproof sunblock from Waterman’s Applied Science and love to face paint with Zinka we do suggest that kids bring their own block along with a few other things…
