SUPKids 10-week programme
We believe that when kids fall in love with an outdoor sport, they fall in love with the outdoors. And kids who love their planet become ambassadors for taking care of it.
The SUPKids program is designed to teach kids SUP, water safety & environmental education. We know what it’s like to fall in love with being in the ocean. And we know that, with a passion for SUP comes a responsibility to take care of our environment. Our vision is to create experiences for our SUPKids that will enhance their appreciation, respect & understanding for sustainable living.
Our program is run in an inclusive, non-competitive environment with a real focus on building self-esteem. We use games, drills & SUP activities to ensure that our SUPKids walk away with vital water safety skills that will stay with them for life. We’ve taken environmental education out of the classroom, to the great outdoors, where we think it belongs.
We run this programme during school time (at parent and school discretion) or after school until sunset.
How it works
Our SUPKids Schools teach our programs in the ocean, on lakes, in rivers and in safe waterways in all sorts of awesome locations. The program has been developed for youth aged 5-19.

We’ve created a comprehensive, educational program. Most schools we speak to say they’ve wanted to do something like this for ages, but haven’t had the time or resources to make it happen. We’ve done all the hard work so you don’t have to.
A movement connecting kids to nature and empowering them to take care of our planet. Collectively we’re making an impact camp; creating a growing tribe of ambassadors for the planet.
We offer more than just SUP lessons. SUPKids combines SUP with environmental education camp; water safety. Teaching kids more than just how to paddle.
