Whether the activity is windsurfing, kayaking, sailing, or stand-up paddleboarding, the camp is intended to teach skills necessary for handling and maneuvering these vessels safely while teaching proper etiquette and seamanship that is useful in all types of boating.
Campers can select one specialized instructional activity for one-week activities (kayaking, sailing, windsurfing/stand-up paddleboarding). Each day is filled with hands-on instruction, water, and land-based games, water safety, and environmental education. Depending on the week, campers will hear from scientists from the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and researchers from the Santa Rosa Island Research Station, and visit the Oxnard Marine Center.
