The Run Down

During each camp, we focus on a combination of on water training, off water training, team building activities, and plain old fashioned fun.  Our camps are designed to provide a customized experience for each camper while still providing plenty of time for team building and socializing.  All training is completely dependent on a camper’s desired watersport and skill level, so each camp can accommodate newbies and more advanced riders.  We offer two types of summer camps:

  1. Overnight camps that run Sunday – Friday and
  2. Day camps that run Mon-Fri 8:00AM – 3:30 PM.

Day Camps

East Side Day Camp Location 1 – Shoal Creek Boat Ramp (6205 Shadburn Ferry Rd, Buford, GA 30518)

  • Drop off @ 8:00 AM
  • Pickup @ 4:30 PM

West Side Day Camp Location 2 – Vanns Tavern Boat Ramp (9300 Vanns Tavern Rd, Gainesville, GA 30506)

  • Drop off @ 8:30 AM
  • Pickup @ 4:00 PM

Overnight Camps

Overnight camps will have the same pickup/drop off point location but the location will differ based on the week of camp attended.  Accomodations for camp are made based on the number of children that sign up, so we will not know until closer to the summer where each camp will be held.  Check the overnight camp registration page for more info on the camp you are interested in:

Each camper is required to take a short safety course at the beginning of each camp where we cover water and boat safety.  The course is painless and for the benefit of all campers and staff.  If a camper has any medical conditions, our instructors need to be made aware of these prior to the start of camp!  We want everyone leaving camp with a smile on their face!
