River Kids – Camp at Oceanport Paddle Club
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.
