River Kids – Camp

River Kids – Camp (Oceanport location)

OPC Camps are Developing Positive Vibes that last a Lifetime!
We are More than just Paddleboards and Kayaks!

Have fun doing paddle sports on the river this summer while making lifelong memories & friends with Oceanport Paddle Club River Kids!

River Kids (camp) is an extended group instruction program. It includes Stand Up Paddle, kayaking instruction. Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) is an offshoot of surfing that originated in Hawaii. Unlike traditional surfing where the rider sits until a wave comes, stand up paddle boarders stand on their boards and use a paddle to propel themselves through the water.
OPC River Kids runs for 3 hours a day, Tuesdays-Thursdays, ages 7- 17. This extended group instruction sells out with a total of 20 students max per day!
