Get the Kids Off the Computer with These Three WaterSports
Operating camps for over 20 years, there’s a reason kids keep coming back. With full-day and half-day outdoor camps running all summer long at beautiful Jericho Beach in Vancouver, Windsure’s qualified instructors are committed to keeping kids happy and safe. They offer many levels of classes, from newbies to older kids who already know the basics but want to level up on their skills. It’s so much fun, kids will look forward to a day at the beach.
Kids will love learning the proper paddle techniques in a fun and safe, non-competitive environment. Windsure’s goal is to provide beginners with the skills, knowledge, and equipment they need to become self-sufficient stand-up paddlers. Students will intermittently paddle and play beach and water games, allowing for active rest between shorter paddles. Classes for kids from ages 7-15 are available for beginner and advanced learners.
In this camp, children will find themselves on the water for half the day windsurfing, equipment knowledge, points of sail/ wind theory, steering, tacking, water and marine environment safety. Students will spend time both on land and on the water. Classes for kids from ages 7-15 are available for beginner and advanced learners.
Learn how to ‘skim‘ the tidal pools of Spanish Banks in a fun and safe environment! Get a comprehensive introduction to skimboarding for those who have never tried the sport before, or who might want to learn some new tricks. Over the course participants will learn about the tides, basic techniques of the sport – ‘throwing’ and ‘skimming’- and maybe even delve into some tricks. Skimboarding will be especially easy to pick up for those who are experienced in boardsports such as snowboarding, skateboarding or longboarding. Classes for kids from ages 7-15 are available for beginner and advanced learners.
