Standup Paddleboarding for Kids

In this YOUTH version of our Standup Paddle Boarding course your kids will be introduced to an outdoor activity that is fun and easy!

Paddleboarding is a unique water sport! Whether your kids are world-class swimmers or a bit water-shy, they will be able to paddle an SUP. We’ll learn the basics near shore, then gradually move into deeper water to practice a variety of strokes and maneuvers. Parents are welcome to find a park bench nearby to observe (and take pictures!) during the course.

Outdoor Adventures' expert paddling instructors will teach your kids the basics of this up-and-coming sport while encouraging safe and responsible choices while on/near the water. The instructors will demonstrate how to paddle and how to get on and off the board, followed by a guided tour where your new paddler can put their new skills to the test!

This 2 hour lesson will provide the basics of paddle boarding skills and a solid foundation for future paddling adventures! Our instructors are eager to share their love of paddling with your kids! We provide fun, hands-on activities and small class sizes - generally 3-5 students, allowing for plenty of individual feedback from the instructors and the opportunity to meet new friends.

This course is designed for kids between the ages of 12-15. Your child must be able to fit in one of our youth or adult-size pfd's in order to participate.
