    S.P.F.-The Summertime Mentality- 1. SAFETY, 2. Program, 3. Fun!!

    • All aspects of programming are designed with safety as the main priority. Customized safety systems are unique to Summertime programs and situations
    • 5:1 student to instructor ratio at our camps
    • Campers learn safety in and out of the water
    • SUMMERTIME staff members are Certified Lifesavers trained in CPR and First Aid, hold WPA Certificates, and have experience working with the local lifeguards and first aid squads to further ensure the safety of our campers and staff
    • PFDs utilized for developing safe habits
    • A note from Shaun:" "A healthy paddler is a happy paddler!" We are prepared for emergencies and have dealt with injury, both serious and minor, effectively in the past. A tent/canopy acts as our home-base and campers find shelter from the sun regularly throughout the day. All of our equipment is inspected daily for potential hazards and we use only new, beginner-friendly paddleboards. All participants must sign a waiver due to the inherent risks of paddling and other activities that our camp provides. That being said, we would like to assure you that we have carefully chosen a team of responsible adults to provide the best experience possible for you or your child. We realize that there will be bumps, breaks, bruises, cuts, scrapes, and possibly a few tears shed, but we will work with you and your child to make sure that their experience is one that they walk away from smiling.

    • Shaun's TIP: Campers start come in the beginning of summer have the whole season to practice new skills
