ADK Watersports: SUP (Stand-up Paddleboarding)
Legend has it that Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) got its start in the Hawaiian Islands. This ancient form of surfing has reemerged as a hot new sport, and Lake George is the perfect place to learn. Initially, we started our SUP camp by introducing paddleboarding as an Adventure Period activity. The more kids SUP’d, the more they were obsessed! Due to popular demand, Stand Up Paddleboarding is now offered as a full SUP camp program.
SUP camps allow summer camp kids to learn this little known sport. Paddleboarding is all about balance, so age is no barrier to becoming proficient at this cool sport. Kids SUP using adjustable paddles, and younger campers may choose to have a counselor on board until they feel comfortable. Once the group is up, they’re off, and can be found just about anywhere around the peninsula. SUPers love paddling over and peering down at Crazy Kate’s boat! Lifejackets are required, so jumping off the board and into the lake makes every class wicked fun.Map
