SPI Sessions- SUPKids Camp

SUPKids is an international program that SPI Sessions licenses. We operate this camp in the summer as part of our 6-Day "Surf.SUP.Science" camp or with the unique ability to book independently of other camps. The SUPKids main goals are to teach stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), water safety, and environmental education. Kids learn best when they’re having a good time and SUPKids masters ways to sneak in the educational stuff in a way that keeps everything super fun.

Frequently Asked Questions

We realize you might have lots of questions for us about this exciting camp so we've tried to spell out some of the most frequented questions! Feel free to reach us by phone or email if you have any other important questions for us!

The SUPKids program has been developed for kids ages 5-12 years old. SPI Sessions’ staff monitors age ratios per session and applies age appropriate curriculum per session. Therefore, not all SUPKids Sessions are alike!

The SUPKids Program is offered Sessions (1-8), on Thursdays & Fridays from 10am-2pm!

Primarily we are located at the "South Flats" which is on the bayside north of the Convention Center. We ask that parents drive towards our tent and trailer set-up which is set-up at the water's edge. 

Occasionally, if conditions permit, we will ask to take the SUPKids to the surf side. For this to happen we normally wait for the surf to be flat and have a smaller group.

If in any case we have bad weather, we will take our group to The Native Plant Center (our safe haven) where we will can be in doors and still run through all of the traditional SUPKids themes and workbooks.
