This is the summer camp everyone is talking about. 

Oyster Coast Watersports now presents a new half or full day summer camp in Whitstable. The day consists of fun on the water, if the weather and tides are good we might go sailing, we might go Stand up paddle boarding, maybe kayaking, there is no definitive structure to the day and please parents do not request your child has to just do sailing or paddle boarding, we try and do different things, it is not going to just be a sailing day or a sailing week. it is just fun around the water and getting wet.Kids Day Camp;

Sailing, Stand Up Paddleboard, Kayaks & Life Raft Assault Course. Day Camp Water Activities for 7 15 yr olds from 30 for a morning or afternoon. Half day 9:15-12:00 or 13:00-15:45 or book the whole day for 50.

If we can go sailing,  you might well get a RYA Sailing Certificate. As part of our activities, the young people might be taught how to Sail by enthusiastic Instructors using Tazs, Topazs and Picos.

Stand up Paddle boarding SUP. The latest cool sport, surf and paddle, great exercise, a lot of fun. We have 10 super light SUP boards and our ASI instructors teach the correct technique, as well as some XL sups which take up to 10 young people.

Kayaks. There is a large selection of sit on top kayaks, organised races or just a sedate paddle, great fun falling off and climbing back on these craft.

Row Boat. Great fun with team work required. This exercise full activity is new to our range of options.

Life Raft Assault Course. This is actually what the kids seem to love most, jumping in and out of these massive life rafts, these large rafts can carry a lot of people and there is nothing better than jumping on and off these huge inflatable rafts with their new friends. 

Once the young person has reached the correct standard they will be presented with an RYA Junior Sailing Certificate or an ASI Stand Up Paddleboard Certificate. Depending on weather conditions, this usually takes between 5- 10 sessions, ( it might take a little longer as this is a multi activity day camp and not a single discipline school )

Bring your children to our day camp, Open 5 days a week, Monday Friday throughout the summer holidays, for a great day of fun filled water activities.*Available for children from age 7 to 15, these fun and educational day camps provide your children with invaluable water safety skills whilst having a great time ! *Some activities are dependent on our lovely British weather ! But do not be disheartened; poor weather activities are available throughout the day if needed. More information available on request.

Whitstable is famous for oysters, festivals, regattas and racing events including national sailing championships and water ski races throughout the summer. Who knows one day you too could be competing in these events. Why not come and take part in our day camps. Please do not drop off your children more than 15 mins before the session start as our staff are always busy ensuring the equipment is safe and ready to use, they cannot be in two places at once. They will watch the young people during lunch break ( you are responsible for sending them with a picnic, sorry we do not supply this ).

Please make sure the young people have warm clothes to change into, a towel and a waterproof coat as it might rain. If there is a chance of sunshine please apply sun cream before they come down to the beach. All the gear needed for the water such as buoyancy aids ( which are compulsory ) wetsuits and spray tops are included within the prices.

Day Camp for just 30 a morning or afternoon. or 50 for the whole day.

If the weather is not suitable ( as in not safe ) to go on the water we will go crabbing or play beach games.

Wetsuit bouyancy aid
We will supply wetsuits and bouyancy aids, but the child will need a towel warm dry clothes to change back in to at the end of the day, some shoes they can wear on the beach or go in the water with, sun tan cream,and if they are coming for the whole day a picnic.
Marnie, 7 years old, thoroughly enjoyed her first experience of the Kids Camp. I'm now being berated for not bringing her sooner and she is cancelling all plans so she can fit in another session before we leave. She loved the SUP boarding and kayaking and generally mucking about in the water with the team and has her eye on sailing now too. We'll be re-booking next summer for sure. Thank you!
