We are one of the only camps in the area that offers Wakeboarding as an activity. We offer all day and overnight wakeboarding trips to boys that have completed the 5th grade. We have two specialized wakeboarding boats and a pontoon boat plus several different sized boards/bindings so that every boy’s size and ability level can be catered to.
We take the boys out to Lake Jocassee, which is not only a stunning body of water it also provides excellent places to stop for a swim, and calm flat water which is perfect for wakeboarding. The boys may get the chance to jump off a local “jump rock” or explore one of the many beautiful rivers that feed into the lake. Lunch is sometimes spent on our pontoon boat in the middle of the lake followed by a relaxing swim.
Our counselors are all highly skilled wakeboarders themselves and receive extensive training in boat safety and wakeboarding instruction before the summer begins. They can cater to boys who are trying wakeboarding for the first time and require encouragement and intensive instruction as well as the boys who are more advanced and want to advance their tricks and general form.
We offer overnight wakeboarding trips towards the end of the camp session. The boys spend the day wakeboarding and tubing on Lake Jocassee before setting up camp for the night in the forest bordering the lake. They spend the evening helping cook dinner over the fire and cooking s’mores before bedding down for a night under the stars.
