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.
We run this programme during school holidays, roughly 09:00-17:00 in-line with parental/caregiver work schedules.
You can choose from 1-day camps or our culminating two-day overnight trips.
This is how a programme looks: Sat. and Sun. will be local day trips (or preparation for the following), Mon. & Tue. will be an overnight trip. Wed. and Thu. will be day trips then Fri. and Sat. will be an overnight. Therein follows the theme.
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 school holiday programmes are 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.
How SUPKids 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.
Our holiday camps immerse youth in global & local environmental issues, shoreline clean ups, team building, waterway safety/etiquette, PaddleFit games & more! Our primary purpose is to foster an appreciation, respect & understanding for the environment in our youth & to grow their passion for nature & SUP.
SUPKids is an international program that Social nature Movement licenses. We operate this SUP camp with the unique ability to book independently of other camps. The SUPKids main goals are to teach stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), water safety, and environmental education. Kids learn best when they’re having a good time and SUPKids masters ways to sneak in the educational stuff in a way that keeps everything super fun.

Just because the 'official' SUPKids lessons stop at five, doesn't mean the learning, mastery and discoveries stop too. Social Nature Movement always take participants as far as they can go, not as far as we think they should go. So, if they have a passion project, an environmental inkling or simply love it so much, SNM are the ones to help that insatiable mind!
